"Little House on the Prairie" Projects

We finished our most recent novel, "Little house on the Prairie" at the end of February. After taking our unit test and watching the movie, we spent several days creating our own scenes from the book. Students practiced using text evidence and dialogue in their writing while creating their own plays based on a scene in the book. Students were in charge of their own writing, props, and acting. They did a great job!

Please enjoy these pictures and videos from the plays.

 

Social Studies Fair

At the beginning of March, all fourth graders participated in the Social Studies Fair. Each student chose their own topic, conducted their own research, and created their own display board. Student also practiced presenting their topic before being judged by three community members.

Please take a look at our class projects!

Pancake Races

The Tuesday before Lent is called Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, or Pancake Day. To add a little fun to the day, students took part in pancakes races in the gym. Students were split up into multi-grade groups and they had to run across the gym relay-style while flipping their pancake in the air. Teachers also got in on the fun!

FFA Petting Zoo and Farm Safety

Fourth graders attended the petting zoo and farm safety event put on Colby FFA members.

Science Investigations

In early February, we finished up our unit on erosion, weathering, and deposition. To complete the unit, students worked in groups to plan and conduct their own investigation. As you can tell, learning about science can be fun!
