Ever wonder how you'd advertise your colonial trade back in the good ol' days? Well, you know the 5th graders did! look at some of their results.
THE KING'S M & M'S
The 5th grade students took a creative look the conflict between King George III and the American Colonists through the historical simulation "The King's M & M's." Through the roles of king, parliament, tax collector and colonists, the students were able to get a better understanding of the phrase, "Taxation Without Representation," and had some fun along the way!
The texts we read are rich in figurative language. The 4th graders put together an idiom booklet... can you guess the following phrases?
Video Conference with Ms. Parra's GT Class
This Halloween, the 4th and 5th grade students has a Monster Exchange project with the GT students in Ms. Parra's class at Cielo Vista Elementary. We created original creatures, and send her classes written descriptions. In return, they sent us descriptions of their creatures, which we had to use to recreate their creations. The results were surprisingly close! It was a great opportunity for our students to interact with other GT students in the district, and great use of our video conferencing equipment. We hope to set up more projects in the near future.
The GT studetns received a great lesson in Civics when they participated in an upper grade election for President of the United States. Let your voices be heard, regardless of age!
