FIFTH GRADE Mrs. Archer In September, the fifth grade studied North American Indians in Social Studies. They used ref- erence books and learned about the types of houses, huts, and teepees they lived in. The class learned about how they dressed, what kinds of articles they made, how they hunted, what they ate, and other things. They drew pictures for art class of the six major groups of Indians. The class studied: the Pacific North- west Indians, Intermountain In- dians, Southwest Indians, Plains Indians, and the Eastern Wood- land Indians. In late September and early October they spent a week de- signing an imaginary trip along "The Oregon Trail". They stud- ied states and territories along the trail; early methods of trans- portation; what they ate; what dangers they faced, etc. . They listened to reading from Women of the West, a true diary of women who traveled west to help us get a realistic picture of what the trip must have been like. The class coordinated lessons in reading, English, social stud- ies, and art to go along with this unit of studying. They have also worked on re- ports this past nine weeks on musical composers, early ex- plorers, favorite states, as well as book reports. For most of November they have been studying current events by using the "Weekly Readers". The class has been particularly interested in the election. They have discussed many of the issues involved in this year's election and have studied candi- dates" views on various issues. Two or three days before the election ballot election and the results came very close to being the actual results of the real election. SIXTH GRADE The sixth grade year started off with a blast! Dr. Cottrill, an instructor from Glenville State College, came to talk to us on space. He answered many of our questions. We enjoyed having him very much. We also wrote him a letter on the computer thanking him for coming. On October 28, 1988 Kelly Arnold, a man from The Glen- ville Democrat, came to talk to us about the way a newspaper is put together. We enjoyed it very much. Also, that day at 1:30 p.m., the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades had a Halloween dance. It was very enjoyable. The sixth grade made bulletin boards on school subjects for an art project. Lots of effort went into these and they looked terri- fic. The sixth grade also made projects on stories from their reading book. The stories used were "The Great Storm", "Henry Reed's Baby - Sitting ~l, t.t T " ~II and "Hamish and the Red- coats". Every project turned out great. Papers were also written on these subjects. During National Education Week, the sixth grade was very busy. On Monday, November 14, the class wrote a paragraph on what education means to them, and began making book- marks with a saying on it about education. On Tuesday, October 15, the class made an Education Poster, and participated in Read-Out from ll:00to 11:30. On Wednesday, November 16, grades 4-6 made placemats for the lower grades for Thanks- giving Dinner. The class also made gifts for the teachers and gave them to show their appre- ciation. Then, on Thursday November 17, they decorated the lunch- room for the lower grades.The class also wrote in their journals about what education means to them. On Friday, the teachers had a surprise for the 4th - 6th grade, because of their hard work throughout the year so far. The hummingbird's heart beats 615 times a minute. SELL?
