4th, 6th, and 7th Grade Student Work

4th graders in Ms. Singer-Zhou’s class shared their favorite holiday from their home country. Check out Chinese New Year, Festa Junina from Brazil and Christmas.

 

Ms. Connor’s Grade 4 EAL students read and discussed cultures and cultural symbols.  Students interviewed family members about family heirlooms.  Students then created a PowerPoint presentation to share about their family heirlooms and the significance it holds for them and their culture.
