A Glimpse Into the Fifth Grade Hall

 

Ms. McNulty's class museum provides an opportunity for students to literally touch the past, a past that reflects an area specific to Charles City. Students get the opportunity to become curators for visitors and guests that stop by. Look soon for pictures of fifth graders hosting the kindergarteners as they take a "museum field trip" to 5th grade. Our fifth grade students love showing off their museum!Fifth grade hallway pictures include Ms.  McNulty's students' "Our New World!".  During their study of geographic landforms, students created continents based on what humans would want or need while exploring. The class watched the scene from "Elizabeth" where Sir Walter Raleigh describes hope upon finding land. They applied that with what they would "hope" to find after being trapped in a crowded ship for months.  In addition to the colorful continents, students put together a "Non-Fiction Text Features About Me" as a great way to get the year started with a reminder of what non-fiction features are and a way to present themselves.  Finally, students introduced themselves to Ms. McNulty with  "I am..." strips displaying how her students see themselves.
