The 6th graders have been reading historical fiction novels during Literacy Month. Here are some of the websites they created to show their understanding of the historical context and connection to the novel…
- Women’s Suffrage:http://epark12004.wix.com/timeforcourage (A Time for Courage)
- Civil Rights Movement:http://2022dohe.wix.com/the-watsons (The Watson’s Go To Birmingham)
- Sacajawea & the Lewis & Clark Expedition: http://chewonmoon.wix.com/sacajawea
And please do stop by the school and check out the bulletin board in the hallway on level 2 (next to Miss.Lund’s classroom) to learn about one girl’s journey after the Mexican Revolution :D (Esperanza Rising)
We also have a really amazing 3-Dimensional model about the Chinese immigrants’ experience with building the Transcontinental Railroad (Dragon’s Gate) to be displayed in the library!
What an awesome literacy month!
