First Grade AIM

Ancient China

This week in AIM...

We started our time together trying different skills to build a model of the Great Wall of China with dominoes. They found this challenge really hard and certainly began to appreciate how hard it would have been to build the original wall. We spent some time thinking about what questions we wanted to ask at our "Great Wall of China" press conference (second graders played the role of the emperors, architects, soldiers and workmen). They did an excellent job asking questions and writing down the answers. They will use this new information to write their next article for their newspaper! With the last few minutes I paired them up with a second grader and they attempted the challenge again!
