In social studies this week, we began talking about natural resources and how our resources vary depending on the physical characteristics of the area we live. We have begun to look at maps that show characteristics of the United States and will begin research this week on the regions of the U.S. Students completed a write chat on the topic of "Where do pencils come from"? A write chat is where students must chat on a topic, only by writing. It is tougher than you think, but it's really cool to be able to see their conversations unfold!
