EXPLORER TREASURE CHEST

  • Each student was given the name of an explorer to research. It is their responsibility to research and find out information about this person. (Parents should help as needed.)
  • A complete set of all the requirements for this project was given to each student on Monday, November 30.
  • Students should do the bulk of the work at home. However, any extra time in class may be used to work on the project.
  • I have also set aside a few days after school for students to stay if they want some additional assistance completing the project. If your child wishes to stay, please write me a note indicating your permission and how they will get home at 4:00.
  • I can print out pictures or maps for students, but I will need a few days notice. (As your children get older, a working printer is very helpful to have in your home.)
