Redwood Room State Fair

  |   Aaron School, Elementary School

In Social Studies, during the first half of the school year, the Redwood Room third grade students learned all about different types of communities. They started off by learning what a community is, followed by the different communities that they live and work in, such as New York City and the Aaron School. As the students finished up their community unit they talked about how the United States is made up of 50 states and each one is like a community. Redwood knows that they live in New York and they discussed the many ways our state is special. As a class they also discussed how each state is different from one another. The group thought it would be a fun idea to learn more details about different states, since they already knew so much about New York! Each student was given the opportunity to pick five states that they would be most interested in completing a project on, and then each was assigned one specific state.

The Redwood Room went above and beyond what was asked as they brought in their final projects. The entire class was so proud of themselves and each other that they wanted to show off their hard work to friends and teachers in other classrooms! So the group distributed a special invitation, offering the Aaron School community a chance to join them at a State Fair. During their Social Studies period, the class sat with their projects as students and teachers walked around the room. They were able to answer questions that were asked about their states, and identify where the information was located on their lap books. The students received little compliments, written on sticky notes, which made them even more proud of their work! The Redwood class had a blast completing and sharing their state projects and learned so many fun facts about their states and the states of their classmates!
