Industrial Revolution

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!

Students have spent the past few weeks learning about Colonial America. On their Choice Board they were given the options of creating a travel brochure, designing a board game, or writing a newspaper about their colony. Today we shared those projects in small groups. Students showed fabulous creativity as well as incredible knowledge about their subject matter! Amazing work 5th grade!
