One of our major interdisciplinary units in fourth grade focuses on Native American groups and the environment. This unit includes reading "The Sign of the Beaver" by Elizabeth George Speare, an in depth study of the diverse and cultural native tribes that inhabited what would become New York State, discussion on the Native's use of natural resources, a presentation by a Native story teller from the Turtle Clan, a longhouse project, cornhusk doll crafting with family members who are invited in to our classrooms, cooking native dishes like succotash, and so much more. Here are a few photos from some of these culturally rich activities. See ALL of our longhouses here: https://fb.watch/g_hDYDBH-t/

We are gearing up for Thanksgiving in the elementary. Our second graders read "Silly Tilly's Thanksgiving Dinner" by Lillian Hoban with Mrs. Holt in the library. Ms. Meyer's class is pictured here in their "foggy glasses" like Tilly has in the story. Students wrote what they could "spy" and what they are thankful for on the lenses. These students would encourage you to read this fun book!
