Hello, Owls! I hope your summer has been off to a FANTASTIC start! I've been thinking a lot about our great year together and I can honestly say that I miss it already! Here are a few final pictures from your last week in 2nd grade. Enjoy!!
As part of our social studies curriculum, second graders learn all about our national symbols, landmarks, monuments, and parks! To launch this final unit, each classroom was given a national park to research. By teaming together, our Owl class learned TONS of exciting information about Redwood National Park. Connecting to our plant unit, we wanted to learn about, and teach others about, this special place (and the special tree that grows there!). 2H had a BLAST working together to create exhibits and information to share with the other second grade classrooms. Check out all of their hard work!
After our exhibit was open and ready for visitors, it was time to put on their ranger vests and head out to explore!
For our final writing unit, these second graders gave it their all to persuade others! We created travel brochures for their favorite New England attraction! We had all sorts of places from Stratham Hill Park to Gillette Stadium, York's Wild Kingdom to Sunday River, Water Country to Great Wolf Lodge and LOTS of places in between! We had a blast taking a "tour" of all the neat places near us! We also persuaded others to visit our favorite restaurant or read a favorite book!
Finally, our last day of second grade was upon us. While it was sad to say goodbye, we knew we would always have our 2H memories in our heart! Bring on third grade!!
