California Comes Alive!

My students need an engaging, interactive experience to make California history come alive through music, games, skits and imagination.

My Students

My fourth grade classroom is full of eager learners with a wide range of learning styles.

Some are English learners and all from different socio-economic backgrounds.

Although how we learn and where we come from vary, we have many commonalities that bring us together as a community of learners. We support each other and encourage each other. "There are no mistakes, only lessons." -Abraham Lincoln. That is our motto in room 17 as we work together daily to become our best.

My Project

A Walk Through California is an engaging, educational presentation utilizing friendly competition and lively retelling of our history curriculum. Our “in-school field trip” will allow 34 students to have an unforgettable historical experience through dynamic, interactive music, games, and dramatic activities that encourage participation and comprehension of the California history standards. My students will benefit by interacting with history rather than just reading about it. That is where real learning happens! A book is great, but being in costume and reliving history engages students on a completely different level.

My dream is for my kids to always remember what fun they had learning history in Mrs. Gregersen’s classroom...the year they fell in love with history.
