For the past couple of weeks the sixth graders have been studying the Renaissance. Each sixth grader chose a character that was influential during the Renaissance to study in depth and dress up as for the Renaissance Fair. The students looked great in their costumes, delivered fantastic speeches, and entertained with their period dances. Way to go sixth graders!
As part of our unit on maps and globes, second grade students sent Flat Stanley to relatives and friends all over the world. We had so much fun reading all about Flat Stanley's adventures as he returned to the school over the last month. Flat Stanley visited 25 of the 50 states in the United States. He also visited Mexico, Brazil, El Salvador, Canada, New Zealand, France, Austria, Kuwait, and India.
To finish a unit of study on Ancient Greece, the sixth graders competed in the Olympics! The students had a great time building temples, testing their knowledge of ancient civilizations, wrestling (thumb war), throwing the javelin (straws), and throwing the discus (frisbee)!
