Third Graders Make Global Connections
Third graders learned about many structures built in the United States that used recycled materials. This ties into their role as stewards of the school who promote recycling and composting throughout the school. They listened to stories that highlighted recycling including Grandma Prisbrey’s Bottle Village, Watts Towers and the Heidelberg Project. They also read about building the White House in the picture book Brick by Brick and about the construction of Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in NYC in Me and Mama and Big John. This then extended to global landmarks where students worked in pairs to research their landmark, using books and databases and then ultimately constructing the landmark using 3D software. Many of the landmarks chosen had cultural significance to the student. They had either visited it or had a connection through their heritage. Come see the display on the world map!
