This week…
We just finished a nice round of Native American presentations, and as always, your kids taught me many new things. Thank you for helping them with their projects as needed. Today the students picked their next research assignments based on the Plains Indians and those projects will be due the week of January 14th. Their choices are at the bottom of this update.

Since the last update, we have studied volcanoes, layers of the earth, the rock cycle, water cycle, and erosion. We also looked at the skills Native Americans needed to have in order to survive and thrive in their respective climates.

Next week and beyond…
In the coming weeks, we will learn about Lewis and Clark, Sioux warriors, layers of the atmosphere, the carbon cycle, and zones of the earth.

Our next field trip will be to Dorris Ranch and the details will be forthcoming. This trip will supplement the Native American studies taking place in the classroom and research projects happening at home.

We wish you a safe and happy winter break full of memories and laughter.

Eric and Emily
