Try playing a few of these games to get familiar with some common 3-D shapes.

Lewis and Clark: Westward Ho!

President Thomas Jefferson bought a huge piece of land from France, known as the Louisiana Purchase.  But he needed to know what was even out there.  He hired Lewis & Clark, with a bit of help from Sacajawea and a few others, to explore and observe the territory.  They traveled West, clear to Astoria, Oregon!  Along the way, they recorded tons of information about the people, land, and experience in their journals.

Oregon’s Regions

In our Oregon text, the state is divided into four regions based on climate, population, jobs, and land.  The four regions are the Coast, Willamette Valley, Cascades, and Eastern Oregon.  Students are using this information we learned earlier in the year and are still learning about, to examine the journey of Lewis and Clark and the early settlers of Oregon.

Women’s History Month is March

In class right now, we are studying the idea of “Everyday Heroes” and Biographies.  Since it is also Women’s History Month, why not study Women Heroes throughout history?

Time for Kids has some amazing stories about Women Heroes. 

Women’s History Month
