Social Studies

In social studies…

     During the month of November, fifth grade students will be continuing their study of various Indigenous groups of the Americas (Maya, Aztec, Inca, etc), focusing on how geography impacts culture, traditions, and ways of life. 


     Additionally, students will be learning about European Exploration to the Americas and how the arrival of these explorers affected the native groups already living there. 

     Finally, as the month goes on, classes will start immersion into the topic of United States Westward Expansion.  Classes will be completing various projects to express their understanding. is a great resource for students to learn more about these topics.

In Art…

     Humans invent "writing."  Students will learn how to write their name in Mayan hieroglyphs.  (Hieroglyph=Hiero means "sacred" and glyph means "write")

     They will then carve it into soap to create a class "stelae."  Students will also learn about Aztec gold body ornament to compare and contrast these two cultures.


In gym…

     Through tennis ball activities, students will practice their hand/eye coordination skills while also refining their catching, throwing and locomotive skills in fun cooperative activities and movements.
