Presidents in the Making

Throughout the month of February, second grade has been spending a lot of time learning about important people in our history.  We began by writing in-class reports on George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, which enhanced both their writing skills and their understanding of our country’s past.  Now, they are working diligently on their own reports on an important American of their choice.  But we still have more important Americans to honor: them!  Over the course of the next week or two, the students of second grade will get to share what they would do as president of the United States, and consider what it be like if they were the ones sitting in the Oval Office.  They will be asked to consider what would be hard about being president, what they would enjoy, what problems they would solve, and more!  They may be young now, but you never know!  These may be questions they may get to answer for themselves one day!

2nd Grade Writing and STEM Integrations

Our 2nd graders have been busy integrating writing, science, and technology for their animal reports.  They’ve grown so much in their writing skills while having fun learning about an animal and creating a virtual habitat.  Getting to visit their classmates’ habitats with the STEM Lab’s special goggles was a great way to end the project! See below to check out our project.
