Ancient Egypt - Virtual Tour

We kicked off our study of Ancient Egypt with a virtual tour of the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx. By looking into the box held up to their face, the kids were seeing a 3-D scene on an iphone app.

Posters About the Conventions of Nonfiction

The kids are making posters about the conventions of nonfiction, such as subtitles, subtopics, glossaries, and captions.  This work will help them to write their own informational articles in writing workshop.  It will also be useful in our upcoming social studies unit about ancient Egypt.  









Picasso Monsters!

Take a look at these remarkable monsters the kids created, which were modeled on Picasso's paintings!
