Students give disastrous presentations
Moreland Hills Elementary School fourth-graders in Maria Kehres and Stephanie Pawlaczyk’s classes recently imparted their knowledge of natural disasters with their schoolmates in other grades. After studying their chosen topics ranging from erupting volcanoes to hurricanes, the student groups created posters and presentations to share with the school. The fourth-graders focused on the causes and effects of their selected natural disaster as well as how the natural disaster is measured. Students designed the well-organized posters after studying the various text features that nonfiction texts include.
