New Garden Elementary School fifth grade students took a trip to the Museum of the American Revolution recently as a culminating activity to their study of the American Revolution. According to the museum’s website, “From the early stirrings of colonial unrest in the 1760s to the decisive Patriot victory at the siege of Yorktown in 1781, the stories told throughout the Museum of the American Revolution offer a dynamic look at the nation’s founding era.” Students received a guided tour through the exhibits and each exhibit complemented their classroom study. It was the first time many of the students visited the museum and many expressed an interest to return again in the near future. Information about the museum can be found at https://www.amrevmuseum.org/ .
What’s better than a message of encouragement first thing in the morning? On a beautiful morning, Mrs. Gina Brodie’s third graders walked into their classroom to find surprise messages written on their desks. Then each student left kind messages for their teacher and for each other. This year’s theme in Mrs. Gina Brodie’s third grade class is “Be Bold, Be Kind.”
Mrs. Kimberly Hall’s first grade class has just completed their social studies unit titled “Where We Live.” As a culminating activity, Mrs. Hall’s class teamed-up with their fifth grade buddies to create their favorite community helpers. The fifth graders assisted their buddies with write sentences. It was a valuable learning experience for both classes.
