The Story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg By: Susan B. Katz
Learn the story of how Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the second woman ever to serve as a judge on the Supreme Court of the United States. Before she fought for equal rights and made history, Ruth was a curious kid who loved to read stories about strong women. In school, Ruth wished girls could have as many opportunities as boys. She soon learned that by studying and working hard, she could change her life―and the world.

World Map Making with Ms.Gerena & Mrs. Zambrano
During science, Ms. Gerena and Mrs. Zambrano’s class worked on creating a world map using green cubes for land and blue cubes for water. Students were challenged to cover an entire world map with the cubes to find out which is larger on Earth: the land or water. Students discovered that 71% of Earth is covered by water, mostly by our five oceans.
