Project-Based Learning

1ST GRADE: Helping an Animal in Need

Students in first grade hosted their second annual Animal-Free Circus fundraiser in order to raise money for their adopted elephant, Kiombo. Kiombo lives at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, Africa. First graders launched their unit with a viewing of the newest version of Dumbo.

4TH GRADE:

Together with our partnership, The Center for Architecture, fourth graders created 3D models of various Native American dwellings and villages using mostly raw materials. Here is a picture of presentation day and the younger grades that were invited to view the "gallery"!

5TH GRADE: After 5th grade finished reading Wonder, they watched the movie (movie theater-style) to compare/contrast details. They then created "school fight songs" using our mission statement and "yearbooks" as a way of presenting PSAs on diversity and inclusiveness."
