Today in Social Studies, we started a cool simulation called Discovery. It was very fun.
(Teacher note: “Discovery” went right up to the very last minute, so that’s all the bloggers had time to write. I’m sure you’ll be hearing a lot about it over the next weeks, though. As teacher, I was very pleased at how cooperatively the groups worked.
We also started a unit on Tall Tales. We read two versions of Paul Bunyon, and one version of Davy Crockett. We discussed some common characteristics. After we read a few more, we’ll start writing our own. Stay tuned!)
