Fifth grade has been busy working hard during and after IOWA testing in October. We have been discovering what life was like for families in the 1860s in Western Wisconsin through our current novel, Caddie Woodlawn. Students have been amazed at the differences in what was expected of boys and girls of the time, how people were not always treated fairly if they were different, and the differences of schools today compared to schools of the past. In Science, students are exploring the states of matter, mixtures, and changes in matter. They are excited to complete exploration labs and experiments to see the science in action. Throughout each day we are exploring all that God has given us and all we are thankful for. We wish everyone a blessed  Thanksgiving.
