Third graders have been working on global studies. The continents we studied were Africa, Europe, and Asia. Students were put into groups and researched a country within one of the continents. They learned about the culture, food, school life, and how the people dress.
Pre-K students have been busy learning about planting. The kids showed interest in seeds keeping their fruit seeds found at lunch and picking dandelions at outside time. Ms. Ross brought in avocado seeds from home so students could talk about size of seeds. All seeds are not tiny. In fact students tasted Mango and saw the Mango seed was even larger than the avocado seed!
On April 21, 2016, seven elementary schools from UCPS gathered at the Professional Development Center for the first half of the County Elementary Battle of the Books Competition (EBOB). Union Elementary took 11 students on that day to compete. This is Union's second year participating in the competition and our students were excited and ready to go!
