The elementary’s new inquiry topic is Space! The students have begun to study the Earth’s rotation, the seasons, and moon phases. We have also covered how long it takes for the Earth to travel around the sun! Each subject so far has inspired the students to come up with noble questions and seek deeper knowledge on space. The classroom is full of literature that integrates space into our literacy time.
As part of our inquiry we have also included our specials. Today Ms. Shayla showed the students how to use a technique called foreshortening to make their pictures look like they are in outer space! Our student teachers made a wonderful entry way poster to incorporate the planets!
