The students from both classes are paired up in teams to represent different countries participating in the Olympics.
To kick off the week, students reenacted various winter sports from bobsledding to curling to figure skating!
Students compared the first Winter Olympics to the present. They also had an opening ceremony outside on the blacktop and passed around the Olympic torch! The classes are utilizing nonfiction text for their collaborative research project about the various countries. They are incorporating maps, labels, captions, sidebars, photographs, and even comparing/contrasting features about their countries to the United States.
Mrs. McCall put together a Wheaties backdrop for each country to be featured.
