Nov. - March
We began our unit by learning about Nigeria. Students learned:
-where Nigeria is located
-that Nigeria is a country that has states
-how Nigeria's geography compares to America's
-what languages are spoken there
-capital, population, flag, and currency
Students also became experts on one of the following topics:
Students then created a collage that showed the
differences in that topic between America and Nigeria. :)
We then began to learn about what a folktale is, what elements are in a folktale, what a moral is and what types of morals are in Nigerian folktales. Students enjoyed many Nigerian Folktales and learned the importance of Folktale morals.
Math Mysteries Unit!
Sept. - Nov. 2011
We read many mysteries that we had to solve.
Some of the ways we learned to solve these mysteries included:

Once we had solved numerous math mysteries, we wrote our own!
These came out amazing and students were very proud of their writing!
