Anne Booth’s and Chris Mathews’ learning groups are learning about our school community and its members. They interviewed the nurse, librarian and office manager to learn about their job duties and how they can help them do their jobs. The students created posters to share this information with other members of the school community. They shared the posters with their 9/10 year old buddy and hung the posters up around the school so that others in the community can learn how they can be helpful to these community members.
Jennifer Jones’ and Michelle Wheeler’s learning groups are studying healthy habits, My Plate and investigating nutritional facts and how they help us stay healthy.
