November is pretty much over.
And so is our unit on Earth History. Thank you to those of you who came and visited our Rock Museums. Many kids brought in their rock collections and we did our best to make igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic "Rocks" our of crayons. Fun! We also enjoyed root-beer floats, thanks to Dwija, our reading challenge winner.
We are starting our next unit, "Humans and the Environment."
For this unit, students are researching two indigenous cultures: one from North America; and one from around the world.
They are finding sources this week with a set of notes (they have a handout) due by December 4th.
Rough drafts are due December 11th with final drafts following by 18th.
We will have another World Culture Celebration on the 18th (our last day before break).
