Harvest Festival, canoe trips, Adventure Program, World Geography, reading and Writing workshop, Everyday Math, Life Science/Greenhouse, Terra Nova testing Sept. 24-26, Open House....

So little to do, so much time..... wait... stop... reverse that.

We are off to a great start in Fifth Grade!  What a wonderful bunch of students!  We have just begun our adventures in world exploration by studying the continents, latitude and longitude, and the time zones of the world.  Next up: mapping, directions, land forms, and a journey of discovery!

What happens when you try to make a flat map of a spherical object?  Look south for the 7 "maps" we created using orange peels, and then see the cartographers at work!
