Thank You For a Wonderful Year!

Animal Research Presentations

We ended this year on such a wonderful note- the opportunity for each 4th grader to teach the class about the physical and behavior characteristics, habitat, food, and adaptations of an animal. Each student used three resources to research their animal and present a visual aid to the class. We were able to see creative videos, poster collages, and dioramas about the animals. They were all amazing!

Mini- Society Memories

One of our favorite memories in 4th Grade is the opportunity to create a business for Mini-Society. Students learned basic economic principles such as supply and demand, scarcity, inflation, productive resources, profits, and debt throughout this unit. Students put their knowledge to use when they had to create their own business for the school. Each student was to create a business that offered a product or service. Every student was successful! It was an amazing learning experience!

Mystery Skype With Our Friends in Pennsylvania

  We shared 10 clues about our state.
  Mrs. Bair's class shared 10 interesting facts about Pennsylvania.

We also had an opportunity to ask questions about our schools.  Ms. Bair's class is in the 5th grade.

Our mystery detectives were on the case to solve the clues!  They guessed Pennsylvania as soon as all clues were given!  They are mystery skype experts!

Thank you so much to Mrs. Bair's class for  teaching us about Pennsylvania!
Welcome to our place to explore, learn, connect and create!
