January 11, 2013: Field Trip

On Wednesday we visited the Troy Historical Museum. We took a step back in time to the colonial days. We went into a one room school house and were taught by the teacher as if we were students back during the colonial days. We also got to make a candle by dipping a string into hot wax. Finally we went into an old general store and learned about colonial day toys. Then we got to make a ball in cup game. A HUGE thank you to our chaperones who joined us for the day!

November 27, 2012: Social Studies Unit: Celebrations Around the World

This week we started our Celebrations Around the World unit in Social Studies. For the next three and a half weeks, we will be “traveling” all over the world leaning about how different countries celebrate the holidays. Today, we got our suitcases (that we decorated last week) and a plane ticket. Each day, students will get their plane ticket punched as they board the plane to travel to the ”country of the day”. As a culminating activity, we will be having a huge celebration in the gym with the other second grade classes. We will be eating foods from different countries, playing games from different countries, and doing lots of different crafts.

November 17, 2011: Boston Tea Party Video

In Social Studies, we have been learning about life during colonial days, the pilgrims, and the first Thanksgiving. Today, in our Social Studies book, we read about the Boston Tea Party. Mrs. W mentioned that we should watch this video. It is a video that I remember watching when I was a kid!! Enjoy, we’ll watch it and discuss it when I come back on Monday.
