Several months ago RES third grade teacher Tonya Darby applied for our students to get this opportunity to try a new and innovative technology! Students in second grade traveled to China, and even got to see a national park with peacock blue/green water. This trip connected to their unit on cultural studies around the world and helped to further extend their learning about a country that they have been learning about over the last month. Students in third grade traveled west to support their social studies learning about life on the Oregon Trail. Fourth graders traveled to Mars, connecting to their solar system unit of study, and allowing them to see close up a planet beyond Earth! In addition to these curricular connections we also explored Everest and the ocean.
We are thankful to the Pioneer program for their support as well as teachers and staff who gave time and classroom space to host this great experience.
