Fourth Grade Frolics
Events in Fourth Grade during November
We read, investigated, and wrote about "Weather". Then we created a weather station along with different instruments that measure weather.(STEM)
The children had quite a fascination with the history of Jamestown. During Art, they created their version of Jamestown and a battlefield. They had to do research using their book along with other internet sources.
Taking advantage of a Wegman's program for Fourth Grade only, we ventured to Leesburg for a tour and a lesson on nutrition. A Wegman's employee had us go into different departments and learn how to eat healthy. The kids also sampled goodies along the way. In addition, they got a Wegman shopping bag full of goodies.
Charlie & The Great Glass Elevator
In the novel, Charlie and his friends,are skyrocketed into Space and have some incredible adventures. Being inspired by their adventures, the children researched a variety of Space topics as well as a special travelers. Using "Word", they typed up their final copy, and then using "Pages" on the i-pad, they created a cover for their "mini-research" paper.
