Thanksgiving Projects This Thursday!

November 12th -16th

Thanksgiving is a very important holiday for the citizens of the United States. During this holiday we talk about how thankful we are that our country believes in freedom. In the United States you have the right to practice any religion. We do not want anyone to  hurt, tease, or force anyone else to follow a particular religion. Doing something like that would be considered bullying. We do not teach Thanksgiving as a religious holiday, we teach Thanksgiving as a freedom we've earned that allows all religious beliefs. 
       The children were given a project sheet the last week of October. An email was sent with a copy of the project sheet for any parent that did not receive the hard copy, or misplaced it. The projects are due this Thursday, November 15th. Everyone is invited to come to the classroom at 8:15 a.m. to watch the presentations. Please make sure your cell phones are off. If you plan to leave after your child presents, please sit in the back near the door so that no one's feelings are hurt when you get up and leave.

On Wednesday the kids will go to the gym and participate in a gallery walk to view all the amazing science fair projects. They will observe the scientific process in action. This is a great time for students to learn about how science is part of our everyday life.  Most importantly the children get to look for their brother, sister, friend, or neighbor's work and say,"Look at what my sister did, isn't it great!"

Our library resource page has many sites for students to use. Students should be using the Thanksgiving sites to help with their research for their project. The library resource page has many more links to explore: Hunters Creek Library
