California Gold Rush!
This week we will be learning about the California Gold Rush! Students will study how gold was found and why people went west in search of it. They will also learn the process of how they pan for gold. They will get to try panning for gold themselves.
In art this week we will be looking at making names with either bubble letters or 3D letters, and shading. It should be fun as we learn a new way of lettering on paper.
Literacy this week is looking for people with eyes, ears, noses, hands and mouths because we’re talking about our senses! We’ll be practicing and doing some exercises with some mystery boxes and playing a game! Come if you dare!
