|Reading About History|
We are also learning about our country's history in Social Studies. We have learned about the American Revolution and George Washington.
|Writing About History|
We are currently reading The Magic Tree House - Revolutionary War on Wednesday. The Magic Tree House books are so wonderful because they incorporate factual text in the books. We learn facts about history as we travel through time with Jack and Annie. These books are wonderful for second graders!
Another favorite of ours is George Washington's Teeth. George had bad teeth all his life. Did you know he had only two teeth when he crossed the Delaware? He had only one tooth when he became president! Poor George!
We drew portraits of George Washington. This was a directed art activity.
