The first and second grade students at Saint Elizabeth School have been busy completing many hands on activities in Social Studies class. After learning about landforms, the first grade students built and set off volcanoes. Both the first and second graders built models of islands which they named and wrote about. Each island had to include three different landforms and two different bodies of water.
The children are now working on unique timelines showing family histories - family trees! Each child brought in family photographs going back at least to great grandparents. Many of the children were able to go back to great-great grandparents and several went back to a great-great-great grandparent! We even had a great-great-great-great grandmother's picture from 1900!! Some of the children discovered the country that their ancestors emigrated from. Our completed family trees will be on display during Catholic Schools Week.
