Hemby Bridge Elementary hosted its annual International Fair in December. Students took a virtual tour around the world as they shared and gained knowledge with other students about countries they had recently studied. Each grade level and/or teacher focused on different countries. Fourth grade explored the country of Scotland while Fifth grade traveled to England. Students shared their travels using different methods from google presentation to artistic expression and carnival games. Fourth grade teacher, Rachel Varda said “It was a great learning experience for students and they felt as if they actually toured the globe.”
To conclude our study of ancient Egyptian art, the Third graders will be creating a piece of Jewelry. They will make a pendant based on symbols we have studied from the Ancient Egyptians. The pendant will be featured as part of a beaded necklace they will create
