EIS Fifth Grade Activities

image
Fifth grade students have started the school year off learning to work cooperatively. They have begun a large unit in social studies covering Native American groups across America. A great way to get students talking, practicing vocabulary, and reading information is to buddy them up with a classmate. In reading, we have been working on text structures. Students have been working in small groups to find clues in their passages to determine which text structure the author was using. By learning how to discuss their subject information and how to work together as a team, students are making connections to the materials they are learning . What a wonderful start to the year!

While we want you to get all the rest and relaxation possible, it is important to bridge the gap to the next grade level by staying on top of some academic skills throughout the summer.

Fourth Grade Visit to State House

image
On Thursday, March 27th, the fourth grade classes at EIS traveled to Indianapolis, touring the Indiana State House. While at the State House, students sat in the rotunda and learned more about the history and architecture of the building from state house docents. While touring the multiple levels of the spacious building, students and chaperones were invited into several of the state offices and the Indiana State Supreme Courtroom. Students were able to sit in the chairs of Indiana’s state senators and representatives, while docents explained the legislative process and history of the chambers themselves. Between rain showers, several classes were able to walk the downtown canal area, including a walk around the Indiana State Museum to find the 92 pieces of art that represent each of Indiana’s 92 counties. It was a memorable trip for all EIS fourth graders and chaperones.

Third Grade RCC

image
Do you like helping people? Perhaps you will become a nurse when you graduate from college. Would you like to conduct experiments and make medicines for people? Become a chemist. Do you like to take things apart and then put them back together? Maybe you will become a mechanic. Edgewood Intermediate School's third graders have spent the last five weeks learning about various careers and thinking about these questions and many others during RCC, Responsible Choices Club, which is held on Fridays. Several of the students' parents volunteered to come in and share their time and talk about their current jobs. Many parents brought in visual aids to help make the learning "come alive" for the children. The students also enjoyed learning and hearing about the work of a former Edgewood graduate who is now pursuing her master's/doctorate in biological anthropology. The third grade staff is very appreciative of the many parents who were able to make this traditional event another yearly success.
