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!)
