We also started researching Native Americans this week. This is one of my absolute favorite units of the school year. The students are so curious and engaged!
I want to take a minute and tell you about an amazing app that we used this week. It is called Google Expeditions and it is an incredible way to to experience virtual field trips! You can visit the moon, coral reefs, The Great Wall of China, even the surface of Mars. Talk about AMAZING! It is completely free but does require a device.
We used Google Expeditions to learn about and even tour a tipi today before writing about housing in our Native American non-fiction books.
Several teachers from East are going to visit a school in the KC area on Friday. I will be going with the group so we will have a substitute in our classroom on the 18th. Please call the office if your child will be going home a way other than he or she usually does.
Your child is welcome to still turn in his or her turkey project next Monday if they have not brought it to school yet!
