A Peek at Our Week | Elementary | Week of February 17

“While we may come from different places and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one.” – Albus Dumbledore

This week we made a lot of progress on our World’s Fair projects! Lower Elementary students have worked on parts of their display by drawing, coloring, and painting famous items and landmarks from their countries. They have also continued to finish their research. Upper Elementary students have handwritten or typed their final draft, started their cover pages, and are completing their bibliographies! Next, we will all be moving on to creating trifold boards and memorizing a speech to inform you at our Fair! We have really enjoyed seeing the students learn about different people and places around the world and seeing them appreciating the similarities and differences they have discovered! We hope to see you there!

Lower Elementary

These second year students are working on a history assignment together. They learned about the origins of the names of the days of the week. For their follow-up work, they drew pictures to represent the meaning behind each day’s name!
This first year is working on her World’s Fair project! She is researching Italy. She has decided to draw and paint the Leaning Tower of Pisa! Come see her finished product on March 19!

Upper Elementary

These third and fifth year students are working with our landform models! They listened to a CD that came with our work to learn about landforms like a plateau, a canyon, and a volcano! They were able to locate different geographic features on each model and hear how they were formed. They loved this work so much that they spent three days with it!
This fourth year student is typing the final draft of her World’s Fair research paper! She has researched Japan and really enjoyed learning about their customs and culture! After typing her final paper, she will create a cover page and a bibliography before moving on to her trifold board!


Our students have completed their collage art project! They spent weeks studying collages, making pages of paper with the colors they would need, and cutting out each individual shape from those pages. Next week, they will complete an art critique with their peers!
