They brought dances that showed traditions from India, Quebec, USA, Columbia, Belarus, Ireland,Wales, the Ukraine and more.
2nd Grade students waiting for the Goods and Services Fair to start. Today the 2nd Grade had a "Goods and Services Fair". We study in our grade goods and services in the community, so the 2nd grade had a "Goods and Services" Fair. The students have been earing "Hobble Creek Cash" to buy things at the fair to learn about being "comsumers". They also chose something to bring from home to sell and learn about being a "producer" in our economy. It was up to each student to decide the price, how much they would sell, what they would buy, and how many Hobble Creek Cash dollars they wanted to earn (by good behavior at school).
The culminating activity for the medieval unit of study was a festival showcase. Students have been working on projects which were displayed in the morning. The students and teachers dressed in period costumes. Mrs Hollenback, the music teacher helped each class create a play, puppet play, dance or song to share. The day ended with some tasty gruel!
