First Grade

For the past few weeks, first grade students have been studying body parts in both English and Natural Science.  To wrap up the units, each class drew a complete human body.  One student from each class was traced and colored.  Then, the students labeled the different body parts.  Here are some pictures of the process:


In Social Science, the children have been learning about the parts of a home.  To review, they were asked to make a picture of one room using magazine clippings.  Here is a picture of the students in 1°B assembling their projects:

They´ve also been learning vocabulary to use on an adventure holiday.  In their English books, the students have been reading a travel blog.  You can direct them to this blog for information and ideas on starting their own, if they´re interested.  Blogger and wordpress are excellent blogging platforms.
