The first graders started new topics this month.

In Math, they started learning about Measurement and measured things using non-standard units of measurement.

In Language Arts, they started writing non-fiction texts and were able to publish their own How-To Books. The class even did a cooking activity, wherein everyone learned how to cook burgers. This activity got them motivated to finish writing their own books.

Ancient Civilizations is the new unit in Social Studies. The children are now learning about Mesopotamia. They made their own maps of Mesopotamia and even wrote their names in cuneiform.

In Science, they investigated different kinds of environments and how animals adapt to their surroundings in order to survive. It is interesting to see how much prior knowledge the children already have on this topic. ☺
