What We’ve Been Up To…

Times flies when you’re stuck at home on snow days!  🙂  We have quite a few fun things that we’ve been up to in 4R lately, so this blog post is going to highlight a few of those!

Back in January, we spent a week learning about Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights movement.  We watched his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, and talked about how life was back then (and how far we’ve come!).  As a wrap up to our discussion and learning, we did a MLK project about our dream.

We also started our unit studying the Chinese New Year.  (Photos and activities from that unit will be coming in a separate post.)

Today during Math, we took a day to review the different types of lines, angles, and polygons that we’ve been discussing this chapter.  It was definitely a different way to review, as we used our bodies to show examples of the different geometric terms.
