We are learning SO much!
A Day off! by John
This Monday we had off from school because we had something called Columbus Day where we celebrated the day of when Christopher Columbus found America. Christopher was going to India to sell spices but he got lost and ended up in America.After he ended up in what is now called America, he went back to Spain to tell the queen about the new land-- America.
Fun fact.. Leif Erikson was an Icelandic explorer that found North America Before Christopher Columbus did.
Quiz in History! by Michael
In History we had our quiz on types of governments this week. We learned that the United States has a republic government. Examples of governments we learned are - Democracy, is a government where the people VOTE for their leader, Dictatorship, is a government where one person rules over all, and Monarchy, is a government in which the ruler is chosen by a bloodline. It was fun learning about different types of governments.
FUN FACT - If you ever want to know what government the United States has just say The Pledge Of Allegiance. “ I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands; one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all . “
Panda Research by Gage
Our class did the Panda Research by collecting some more facts. I chose my topic called Panda Behaviors- in the zoo, because I was interested in Bei Bei and Mei Xiang’s behaviors. Our class watched the Panda Cam many times and we filled out the observation form online to record what was going on.
I want to know much more about pandas. I saw a behavior of Mei Xiang and Bei Bei around September 28th. For example: Mei Xiang is breathing heavily on her baby cub, Bei Bei. I investigated why --That’s because, Mei Xiang wants to get her cub all warm and moist.

Roman Government by Jack
In our History class we are studying about the Government of Ancient Rome. In their government that had a Senate and an Assembly. The only people who could be in the Senate were men. They were elected for one term. The Senate was made up of two types of people the rich called Patricians and the lower class called Plebeians. We based part of our government on this government style.
