By scrambling and reconfiguring photographs of each others' faces, students learned the Spanish words for the parts of the face while building a sense of community.
STUDENT WORK SAMPLES
2nd Grade - Social Studies - Central Park Study
As part of our Central Park study, we read excerpts from primary source documents and examined photographs, maps and artifacts from the 1850's and 60's. We learned about Seneca Village and how life in the area changed after Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvin Vaux designed and built the park.
5th Grade - Math - Geometry
As part of a geometry unit on measuring angles, we learned how to use protractors and construct working, accurate sundials. We constructed a large version on the playground and students made smaller, wristwatch-sized versions for their personal use.
As a writing project, paddle fans provide not only inspiration for seasonal, nature-inspired poems, but an antidote to the heat!
Scrolls provide further inspiration for poetry, especially haikus!
