Inspiring Life-long Learning for 25 Years
Second and Third Grade are studying calendar and time in this block. Through the Native American stories of the cycle of the year and its related moons, students are hearing the oral traditions of the indigenous people of North America, all the while experiencing geography and climate. Our hero, the humble turtle, first carried the burden of the creation of the world on his back. He was rewarded with next carrying the cycle of the year, or moons, in the beautiful pattern of his shell. We have painted, modeled, and drawn these rich stories while better acquainting ourselves with the cycles of the calendar year.
