First off, the second grade would like to thank Jessica Davis and her mother (Richie's mom and grandma) for their HUGE help in our Great Guinea Pig Cage Hunt! Jessica managed to find two great cages for free and Fido & Daisy the Guinea Pigs are in love with their sweet new homes! Huge thanks to the Davis family from us! All money donated to the guinea pig cage fund will be going toward food and bedding for our furry friends, so a big thanks also goes out to all our friends who donated to the cause!
This past week our class has learned about the hunting and gathering techniques used by Native Americans. We drew hunting maps using our own symbols to represent animals and natural landmarks. We also created gathering baskets, which were a big hit for everyone. Our biggest endeavor lately has been continuing a project from last week which resulted in turning our class tent into a wigwam! Check out the photo gallery for photos of all these great activities!
