Fifth-graders explore native structures
All fifth-grade students created a myriad of structures that represent the homes and buildings of different native groups during an Orange Schools Intersession. The materials they used represented the materials that would have been available to those in that environment. Students chose their projects after studying the Maya, Aztec and Inca civilizations and researching how people lived in different environments including the forest, desert and plains. Orange Schools Intersessions are designed to promote innovative learning outside of the traditional classroom setting.
Students participate in Model UN
