Wall of Dreams

We are beginning the Wall of Dreams in preparation for College Week. Each week we will share information to the students about colleges. The students can earn 20 starbucks and a prize if they take time to research the college for the week. The college for this week is:

University of Kansas

The students can look up University of Kansas and write a 2nd grade essay about the college. Here are some of the things they can write about:

  1. What type of college is it?
  2. What can you study there?
  3. What classes would you take in order to earn your degree in your chosen area of study?
  4. Information about the college - How much would it cost for out-of-state tuition compared to going to a Texas college.
