This week we started a new project based on our interests and what you want to reaserch. This new program is called Personalized Learning. We are developing "yard" questions and researching them. Students have picked topics from constellations to keeping healthy. We have enjoyed the new program that inspires us to learn more about the things we are interested in and to increase our knowledge in the future.
We just finished our response to fiction essay based on the book The Liberation of Gabriel King. Students picked a character and a trait that the character had. Then they wrote about two moments when the characters were showing their trait. Then, we typed them on the computers.
This week we selected wagon train leaders and were sorted into wagon trains. We also packed our wagons and got ready to start the journey heading west. Next week we will be acting out a pioneer simulation and moving across the Hacker Trail. We will have a competition to see who reaches Oregon first! Good luck wagon trains!
