Units of Study

Social Studies: We are wrapping up our unit on the regions and river systems of SC. We will be decorating South Carolina sugar cookies on tomorrow! The lovely owner of Z Bakery in downtown Fort Mill graciously offered to make the cookies for us!! If you are in the downtown area anytime soon, please be sure to stop by Z Bakery for a yummy treat! I have posted a link to their website below for you to check out!

Our Regions of SC unit test is this Friday. A study guide will come home tomorrow. Students have been encouraged to bring home their SS notebooks to study as well.

Science: We are learning all about rocks and minerals...the building blocks of our Earth! We have been busy making all sorts of rock models...even edible chocolate igneous rocks!

Speaking of science....we have had a recent population explosion in our crayfish tank!! We now have about 50 babies who will soon need new homes! Crayfish make great pets and are very easy to care for. If you are interested in adopting one of our babies, please let me know!! :)
