Social Studies & Science

First graders are enjoying many activities to explore our theme this month of Native Americans, Pilgrims and the First Thanksgiving. Students are using non-fiction texts to learn about life as a Pilgrim and Native American child. We are also comparing and contrasting life now and then. Life was sure different then! In science we are continuing to "roll along" with Balance and Motion. First graders are exploring axles, spheres and inclined planes. Students have had hands-on experience with using weight to change the way a system rolls.
