In social studies, we are learning about the people and places in our community. In addition, the children will learn about the different directions on a compass and design a map of their classroom(s).
The students are well on their way to learning about nonstandard measurement and telling time to the hour and half hour. They will be able to tell time on both an analog and digital clock. They love participating in the hands-on activities.
