Students in grade 2 are researching to learn more about some of their countries of origin.  After a conversation with families, each student chose one country to focus their research and learning on.  Ms. Lobenstine and Ms. Lee in the Learning Commons found lots of great books and web sites for students to use.  One of the goals of this research project is for students to utilize more than one source of information about a topic and decide how to best collect, integrate and share that information.  Students are working to learn more about their country of origin’s traditions, language, landmarks and celebrations.  Grade 2 will host a country of origin fair for families on Wednesday, May 3rd, at 9AM.
