In math we are using our new knowledge of geometry to create the blueprints for a clubhouse. When we are finished planning, we will build a scale model of our clubhouse. Check back to see our final products!
We have been studying our great capital city of Columbus. We discovered that many people from many backgrounds make our city what it is. Today, we celebrated our own unique backgrounds by sharing a food from our culture. Thank you to everyone who came to eat with us. The food was delicious and we loved learning about everyone's unique family heritage!
Thank you to everyone who made our Kids 4 Kids drive such a success. Your generosity was evident on Friday when we wrapped mountains of gifts and household items for a family in need.
This afternoon our class took a bus tour of downtown Columbus. We saw several cultural sites and learned many interesting facts. We even stopped at the Kelton House and heard what life was like in the early days of our great city. Ask us what we learned today!
As a part of our study of Columbus, we are reading a collection of Somali folktales. Did you know that Columbus is home to the second largest Somali population in the United States? Ask us about the first tale!
We also began work on our landmark project. With a partner we are researching a historical site found in Columbus. Ask us which landmark we are researching and what we've learned so far!
To prepare for our Columbus bus tour next week, we have been studying important cultural sites around the city. We started with Franklinton, Columbus's first town. As a class we did our research, took notes, and are in the process of creating a brochure. We look forward to sharing with you soon!
To make our writing "juicier" we are using a thesaurus to replace boring words with exciting ones. Turns out, a thesaurus is a very handy writing tool!
