Lower Elementary rocks the end of the year
Animal sciences have been all the rage in Lower Elementary lately. The students have studied the vertebrates, external parts, body functions, food chains and insects.
Students also are enjoying walking the rock cycle, learning the difference between a rock and a mineral, and studying the three types of rocks.
We have begun to look at early humans and will continue to study early cultures through the history of writing and the history of math. We will discuss the basic human needs through history and ponder how those needs have been met and how they have evolved throughout time.
As we begin to wrap up the school year, we will study weather and the water cycle. We will do measurement for our classroom math work, and we will review parts of speech and language mechanics that we’ve learned to this point.
