The first Marking Period is over and that means report cards will be arriving soon. There will be a letter in your child folders about what I focused on to calculate your child's grade. Please read the letter and let me know if you have any additional questions. The letter is also located below!
Today, we were learning about the Statue of Liberty. We learned that she is 305 feet tall. Her nose is 4 and a half feet long. She weighs 450,000 pounds. That is the same as 45 school buses. Her foot is 25 feet long and her toes are 59 inches long. She is made of copper.
We watched some videos, drew her, dressed like her and compared how long our class was compared to her foot!
We began our American Symbols unit with the Liberty Bell! The kids loved it. We learned some fun facts, watched a few short video clips, made a Liberty Bell out of paper as well as drew one!
I started with the Liberty Bell because there is an event this weekend at the Christiana Mall that I thought the kids would love. From 12 to 4 there will be an area set up by the Lego store where all people ages 4 and up will receive a free Lego Liberty Bell kit. This is happening on both Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, October 25.
There are American Symbols throughout the Mall made out of Legos.
Here are just a few you can see:
