My students are awesome scholars that love to engage in their learning and hunger for new opportunities! They come from a Title I school in a small town in North Carolina. We are made up of a diverse population, with 32.8% Hispanic, 32.5% White, and 27.6% African American. They desire experiences, but many times are not presented with the opportunity to do so. They love to learn and their natural curiosity is often what fuels their learning. They are awesome!
The fourth grade curriculum focuses on the three regions of North Carolina in social studies. In science, the students have learned about rocks, minerals, erosion, and weathering. Our students have also learned about the three regions of North Carolina and what each region is known for. Our students have also eagerly learned about the three types of rocks and what causes erosion and weathering. They have become so interested in rocks that they have spent their recess time digging and examining rocks from the playground. Students can experience an integration of these subjects at Grandfather Mountain and Linville Caverns.
Our students have read books, watched videos, and done experiments on rocks and North Carolina, now we want them to experience it!
Linville Caverns shows students what weathering and erosion looks like, as well as some interesting history. Grandfather mountain gives students an opportunity to see the mountain region, as well as learn some North Carolina history. These forth graders are excited and ready to travel to the mountains!
Thank you for supporting us and our transportation costs!
