Students are learning about the Oregon Trail and Gold Rush. They are investigating how the pioneers traveled to a new land and the different routes they took. Also this week, students are taking what they learned from this unit and are beginning work on their Choice Boards.
This week, students will be learning about pioneers and their journey west. Today, students earned about The Battle of Little Bighorn, and Custard's Last Stand. Throughout the week, students will be learning about the Louisiana Purchase, The Lewis and Clark Expedition, and The Texas Revolution. Students will be completing fun, interactive activities, so be sure to ask them all about it!
This week students will begin learning about Westward Expansion! This week, students will be learning about the War of 1812, and the creation of the national anthem. Throughout this unit students will also be learning about the impact of Westward Expansion on Native Americans. So excited to dive into this exciting unit!
Before the break, we learned all about light and sound. This week, students will be review what they've learned with choice boards. We started choice boards today, and the expectation is that they are finished by Friday. If students would like to work on activities at home, they absolutely may, but they should have plenty of time to complete them at school.
After this week, we will be switching over to social studies again!
