Upcoming Science and Social Studies Units

Science and Social Studies on the move...

Beginning this Friday, the two fourth grade classes will travel between Mrs. York's and Mrs. Rencher's classrooms for Social Studies and Science.  Mrs. York and Mr. Merritt will primarily be teaching our new Social Studies unit on early colonization of the Americas, while Mrs. Rencher and Mrs. Bryant will be teaching the systems of the human body.  This model allows primary ownership to rest with one pair of teachers, although all of us will be involved in the implementation and delivery of the content of these units and will collaborate in the assessment of student work. We are very excited to have this opportunity to share our interest and passion about these content areas with the whole grade level and to get to know more deeply the students from our partner class.
