We have used two websites in the past two weeks in social studies that the students have been very excited by and interested in exploring further! One of the sites is an interactive game about the colony of Jamestown and John Smith. The second website has to do with the “Star Spangled Banner” which celebrated its 201st anniversary last week!
The links to each website are located under the “Social Studies” tab on our fifth grade blog. They are located below as well.
On the Trail of Captain John Smith
This Thursday, September 17 from 4:30-6:30 will be the Conestoga Elementary School “Meet the Teacher” night. Mrs. Falk and Mrs. Eckroat hope to see you there! The classrooms will be open during this time for you to see your child’s room, meet the teachers, and learn what your child has been doing during the first month of school!
We also wanted to remind you that this Friday, September 18 will be a 1:30 early dismissal for all elementary and high school students in the district.
This past Thursday, the fifth grade students made “Scissor Salsa” with ingredients from the Conestoga garden! On Wednesday, the fifth grade harvested peppers, a variety of tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and parsley from the garden. Students from Mrs. Falk’s class were nice enough to volunteer to wash and divide the vegetables as well.
On Thursday afternoon, assigned groups were given the necessary ingredients they needed, and they used scissors to cut their ingredients and make delicious, homegrown salsa. The cafeteria smelled wonderful, and the students had a fabulous time enjoying their creations from the garden.
