5th-Graders Present Projects to 1st-Graders

November 23, 2010

from Holy Cross 5th-Grade Teacher, Sheila Neuburger –

Holy Cross first-grade students had an opportunity recently to interact with fifth-grade students to learn about Native Americans.

Fifth-grade students completed dioramas that showed how Native Americans used their environment for shelter and food resources. The next component was to explain this adaptation. First-grade students, studying types of shelter used by native Americans, were to compare each shelter.

The interaction began when the fifth-grade students brought their dioramas to Mrs. Anderson’s classroom. First-grade students rotated to each of the four regions comparing the shelters of each.

The fifth-grade students explained the shelter of each region and how it was built using the resources from the environment, as depicted in the dioramas.

Team members from each group added other information for discussion with the first grade.
