Social Studies – Mrs. Cooper – May 2016

September 30, 2016 9:38 PM | Letricia Hess (Administrator)

During April the students learned about the Underground Railroad and slavery in America. They heard stories about how some slaves escaped and our students got to act out a couple different escapes to help them retain the information. The unit concluded with students getting to go through part of the building, hiding behind “trees” and inside Stationmasters’ houses, with the intention to make it across the Mason Dixon line. This boundary line separated Maryland, a slave state, from Pennsylvania, a free state.

On May 10th, 3 Eagles can bring Show and Tell. If there is time after Field Day, they will get to share their one item from home. On May 17th, all 1st and 2nd grade students and 3 Wolves may bring one item from home to share for Show and Tell.
