Social Studies

We made our very own butter before Thanksgiving as an example of the hard work that children from long ago had to do. We also sorted pictures of long ago and today on a big Venn Diagram! Check out your child's Long Ago and Today book from this week and see if they applied their learning of the past.

K.1.1- Compare children and families of today with those in the past
