In Upper Elementary, 4th graders are diligently working through their “Extreme Settings” unit for Literacy. As part of this coursework, they are investigating different types of resources, including a technical manual, a science fiction novel, and primary sources in the form of photographs. Our real-life weather lately has been incredibly inspiring – while also offering many text-to-world connections – as they work on writing pieces with unpredictable weather and sensory imagery!
