Edna Louise Spear Elementary School students in the second and fourth grades collaborated on a project that took a closer look at the 13 colonies. The grade levels’ combined curricula gave students the opportunity to learn about the colonies and present their findings to their peers.
“The second grade worked on putting the map together, giving it a title, a map key and labels,” said Edna Louise Spear teacher Kristen Poulos. “The fourth-grade students researched information about the colonies, including founding date, major city and the date the colony became a state.”
To complete the project, students worked together to construct a wall-sized map for display in their hallway.
