Some members of our class are "trekking" across the planet, using the website trekkingtheplanet.net. The goal of this project is to bring geography to life. The students are using the newsletter included with this project and then creating projects to present what they have learned! Currently they are working on a Hawaiian alphabet book!
The girls in class are having a great time reading and learning about history, using the Dear America books by Scholastic. These books are tied into social studies and our immigration unit. One group is reading So Far From Home, another is reading Color Me Dark and the last, Dreams in the Golden Country. Visit this site to read and learn more about girls in history. http://www.scholastic.com/dearamerica/
