What's Happening-April 26, 2019

3rd grade

The third graders at Old Mill recently completed a unit where they worked very hard at becoming the “class expert” on a famous person.  This was an intensive unit with many components.  Each student read a book about a famous person from the Who Am I Series, took notes on the book, wrote a research paper, created a one-minute poster/book talk, and created a bio-riddle about their famous person. 

 The best part of this unit is it gets students involved in thinking about men and women who have made a significant contribution to our world. They make connections between what types of character traits these heroes possess and what similar traits students share. 

  One of our many goals from this unit was for students to think about the potential within each of them to pursue their own dreams and what contribution to the world could they make to the world.
