Last week, on November 20th, was National Children's Day. In honor of this celebration the students in Mrs. Hall's first grade class made dolls representing children around the world.
Students chose a country and researched what children looked like and the clothes they wear. The Hoppers had so much fun decorating the dolls that they continued their learning during E-slot.
The learning continued when students looked through books and researched on the computer to find out information about each country, located the country on a map, created the country's flag, read interesting facts about the country and found out what kind of food the children eat. The Hoppers made children from France, England, India, Mexico South Korea and Hungary.
They had so much fun that some students even decided to check out books from the library to continue their learning at home. Mrs. Hall's class enjoyed discovering how children all over the world are different but still the same in many ways.
Continuing to develop the whole child....
