5th Grade Literacy Update

March 18, 2015

Social Studies-Multicultural Education

5th graders are taking part in a school-wide Multicultural Fair for students. We were assigned Australia and Antarctica. So, this week during class, we are going to research and create some 3D objects that tell us about these two continents/countries. Be sure to ask your child what they are working on and what they have learned!
