Social Studies & Science

First graders are enjoying many activities to explore holiday traditions this December. We are learning about Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa. We are reading non-fiction text while collecting and learning facts, playing holiday games, and making crafts that celebrate each holiday. It is so exciting to celebrate each and every holiday. The children are so excited to learn about the different cultures and traditions. In science we are finishing up our Balance and Motion science kit. The children were "rolling" with joy learning about how an object stays stable and balanced. We are also continuing to explore our Weather science kit. How fun it will be to explore snow when it arrives!
