Social Studies- We are in the midst of our historical figures unit. The students are learning all about the famous figures that helped to create the state of Georgia. They have read books and will be researching about these people. The students have been fascinated with their lives back then and how they relate to their own lives today. We can't wait for our Creek Indian field trip to become immersed in their Native American culture!
Reading- In reading, the students have been practicing sequencing non-fiction information that they read. We learned all about Sequoyah and James Oglethorpe. We have made classroom timelines to see where and when these historical figures' lives overlap. It will become more apparent when we learn about Mary Musgrove and Tomochichi.
Writing- The students have enjoyed planning, writing, and performing their force and motion experiments using cars and ramps. They have really taken on the role of becoming scientists and the steps a real scientist would take to complete an experiment.
