Expanding the Country

This week we have a states and capitals quiz over the midwest on Tuesday. We will also be learning all about the Louisiana Purchase and the Expedition of Lewis and Clark. Students will be assuming the role of one of the members of the Corps of Discovery and following an interactive map to see first hand what the expedition was like. We will also visit the National Parks Service site to explore the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail Park and learn about the plants and animals that were sighted for the first time on this expedition.

 

Writing the Constitution

This week is all about our Constitution. We will be discovering all of the who, what, when, where, and whys of the document as students do some independent, and small group research. 

Our next states and capitals quiz will be Tuesday, April 2nd! Study! Study! Study!

Please note that on Wednesday and Thursday, 3rd and 4th grade will be taking benchmarks so our lunch time will be adjusted and we ask that visitors not come on these days to eat lunch with students.
