Mrs. Nelesen's Social Studies & Language Arts Page
All students are learning about an astronaut and what it takes to be willing and able to travel into space as part of our Rocket experience that will be coming up in the next weeks. Written essays about the astronauts are due on Friday and each student must be prepared to share his or her astronaut's life with the class at that time. All students had class time to work on this for several days including today. Fourth graders will also have library time today, and fifth graders will have time on Friday. Each student has an assignment sheet that details the assignment requirements. They also understand that when they present their information on Friday, they will pretend to be the astronaut they have learned about.The Learning Continues!
WOWs have been assigned for this week.
