Using this blog, the students in the fifth grade can share the most important learning moments, exciting adventures, and special snapshots of our day. Check back each day for a peek inside our classroom!
The fifth grade is studying the triangular trade route and the world trade system. So the sixth grade is making a project for the school to participate in. What we have to do is look for objects in our home and at school, then we have to find out where they are made. For example: Ms. Crowell's sweatshirt is made in Indonesia, also Mrs. Prunier's frozen fish is from Maine (see, not everything's made in China!). Furthermore there is a chart that is in the hall that has all of the continents and all of the countries listed below them. Based on the data that we collected we could see how many red, gold, or silver stickers we could get . The red is for the food that we got , the gold is for the clothes we got, and last but not least, the silver was for entertainment, electronics, or house hold goods. Then we put the stickers under the name of the continent or state in which they belonged. The fifth grade learned about where things came from by participating in this project. Now that you learned about the fifth grade project maybe you could try it to!
