Lower School News for September 30 – October 6, 2013

3rd Grade

Third Grade Social Studies students are busy working on two cross curricular projects. We are currently finishing up our learning about urban, suburban, and rural communities. To reflect on the information we have covered, the students located images on the web and imported them into Pages documents during Technology class with Mrs. Truitt. These images will be used to create a mural of the three types of communities, combing other artistic mediums.

To prepare for our upcoming Geography unit, the students have been working on paper mache spheres during Art class with Mrs. Baldwin. Once the spheres are painted blue, we will bring them into the Social Studies classroom where we will turn them into globes. The students will modge podge the continents onto their globes, and complete labeling as we learn about our world.



We are really enjoying combing all of the amazing learning areas that CA offers, as we become wiser about our world!

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects.
