Third-graders are digging deep into other cultures at Fairfield Elementary School. Each student in Danielle McCaffery’s class has been assigned a country to research in the social studies project.
Children are using Chromebooks to look up facts about their assigned countries such as cultural aspects and geographical features. Online resources available through the district website include PebbleGo and the World Book. Library books are also serving as key informational sources.
Each student must complete a written report, informational book and poster about his or her country. In addition to expanding their knowledge of the world, students are developing their research and presentation skills.
