Fourth grade is wrap­ping up a unit on the first Eu­ro­pean ex­plor­ers. Stu­dents have spent time read­ing and re­search­ing the early ex­plor­ers of the United States. They have writ­ten jour­nal en­tries from the view­point of be­ing a sailor on the early ex­pe­di­tions. They used their five senses to de­scribe their ex­pe­ri­ences on the ships. To cul­mi­nate the unit, stu­dents are cre­at­ing life-sized ex­plor­ers, mod­el­ing them af­ter im­ages found on their chrome books. Next, stu­dents will tran­si­tion to the lost colony of Roanoke and the early set­tle­ment of Jamestown. The class will com­plete a novel study on “Blood on the River” by Elise Car­bon. Early Amer­i­can his­tory is ex­cit­ing and fun in the fourth grade!
