North America Presentations

We had a busy week of research! We have been studying North America, and the scholars were asked to choose a topic that had to with North America. Most of the first-years chose an animal, others chose a biome, landmark, or a country. I was impressed with the variety of topics! The students love to research and will finish their morning work as quickly as they can in order to get back to their topic and make more discoveries!

It was a fun and very busy week. I am looking forward to practicing our kitchen skills, while baking this week, and to getting back to more lessons and work with the materials!
