Last week, fifth grade students and seniors partnered together during a unique multi-faceted project. Bringing together both English and science, fifth grade students completed a storybook and worked with English Composition seniors to receive feedback on their creative writing.
“This year in fifth grade we are learning sentence structure, parts of speech, grammar, and syntax and in science we are studying extreme weather, so we provided a fun opportunity to bring these two subjects together,” explained Miss Gwinn, fifth grade teacher. “We assigned each student the task of writing and illustrating a 10-page children's storybook with the theme ‘When I Brought My Weather Home’. We want them to think creatively, combine the different subjects they are learning, and have the opportunity to work with someone older than them.”
