As our country expanded westward, many pioneers packed up their belongings and headed West. Have you ever wondered if you would have been one of those brave people who left the comforts of the east to boldly head to the unknowns of the west? Be sure to check out your student’s digital poster promoting westward expansion.

Students have been hard at work studying the Industrial Revolution. Each student chose an invention that interested them and then wrote a book using the Book Creator app telling all about the invention. Be sure to check out their books, I believe we have some future authors among our 5th grade students!
Be sure to check out your student’s blog to find out all about the War of 1812. Students have written some amazing Acrostic poems about the war.
