Elementary School News
Mrs. Caskey's fourth grade class has been learning about government.
Students have been learning about the United States Constitution, the branches of government, the First Amendment, and citizens' rights and responsibilities.
After researching one of the topics related to government, students wrote paragraphs:
Reading and research - in kindergarten? That's correct! Students in Mrs. Jones' class were given nonfiction books on bears to read. At the beginning of kindergarten, reading takes on many forms. Some students can read the text of simple books while others may use the illustrations to tell a story. The students were placed in teams and given the books to do their research. At the end of the session, students gathered to share what they had learned and a list of facts was created. The following day, students continued to work collaboratively to create group posters illustrating their "bear fact". These posters and facts will be shared with parents at a special presentation on Friday, September 4th.
More photos of the research process can be found in the Photo Gallery Bear Research.
