Terrace Town is fast approaching. We have three Randall classes that are participating this year! My role is a little different this time around. Last time I did Terrace Town with three fifth grade classes with no collaboration from classroom teachers. This year, the three classroom teachers are in charge of everything but construction and even that’s a collaborative effort! It’s so much more fun when we all work together.. : )
My role in Terrace Town kicked off last week with a walking tour of our neighborhood with our students, teachers and wonderful parent volunteers.
Here’s a photo diary of our journey-
Another mixed use building, Trader Joe’s.
Finding answers on our worksheets..
Talking about the Indian Mounds in the green space.
Walking back.. : )
5th graders worked in partners to paper mache a balloon. This proved to be tricky as sometimes the balloon ran away from them! But they are smart and worked to put paper mache in key places to balance the balloon. They created layers for 45 minutes so next week, we can cut them in half and they will be strong enough to use as a base for our masks.
