A Cross-Curriculur Teaching & Learning Opportunity
I was walking through classrooms the other day and happened to notice this group of first graders from Mrs. Ellen Sabourin's class actively engaged in project-based work in the classroom. Mrs. Sabourin explained that the students were combining their unit on the community in the Reading Wonders series with their Social Studies unit on mapping. The students were drawing a map and using their imagination to tell a story about the characters and buildings located on each of the streets. Much lively conversation was taking place while I was watching. This is a perfect example of learning across the content areas. Thanks, Mrs. Sabourin!
