My students are active learners and they thrive on any activity that involves movement. They are intrigued by the chance to be busy. They love to investigate, research, and ask questions. They are resourceful and keep me on my toes. With only two out-dated computers in our classroom, my students continue to persevere despite limited resources.
There are many students where English is a second language for them yet they thrive and excel in learning.
My students are from a neighborhood that is diverse. Over 75% of our students are eligible for free or reduced lunch. They are future engineers, artists, and leaders.
My students are studying Ancient Egypt. We will read Tut Tut as a class. We will discuss the civilization of Ancient Egypt. We will learn about the Great Pyramids and the Nile River. We will learn about hieroglyphics and daily life. We will learn about important symbols, food, and religion.
Students will use the Ancient Egypt nonfiction texts to complete a culminating research project at the end of the unit.
Students will present their findings in a class museum filled with kid-created artifacts, posters, and dioramas. Students will visit an Egyptology Museum and get an up close and personal look at a real mummy. These books will help the history of Ancient Egypt come alive for my students!
