Ms. Posey's History Classes
In November, for Native American Heritage month, Ms. Posey's history classes completed research projects on an important Native American. Students created individual posters, which were shared with their classmates. Classes also created a collaborative poster showcasing a Native American.
To kick off the unit on the American Revolution, students played a tax game with candy to simulate King George III's taxes on the colonists. Students had fun while developing a deeper understanding of taxation!
To learn about the Boston Tea Party, students completed a science experiment by creating a tea crate out of popsicle sticks, string, masking tape, and wax paper. Students tested their ability to keep a tea bag dry in the "Boston Harbor." Students discovered how challenging it would be to keep the tea dry!
