Historical Figures Museum
We are so excited to begin exploring historical & contemporary figures with your child! In this upcoming unit, your child will begin researching/learning about specific individuals and then take on the role of a "docent" in order to showcase their knowledge not only to the school but to you as well.
In order to make this a success, we ask you to please mark your calendars for Cottonwood's Open House on Thursday, March 10th. This exciting night will begin at 5:00, and it is mandatory that your child arrive at that time to participate in the "gallery". This will occur for about 20 minutes, and then we encourage you and your child to focus on other projects for the remainder of the evening.
This project will be introduced to all third graders next week, but we wanted you to have advance notice for scheduling purposes.
