Who We Are

For the past two weeks our class has been investigating the idea of standing up for our beliefs and convictions. What better way to explore this than to read, write and role play the American Revolution?

The class discussions this past week revolved around how America became America, how we went from a small settlement to 13 colonies to 50 united states and just in time to go to Jamestown and Yorktown!

On March 8, the students will be heading down to Jamestown, the place our country started! In the afternoon, we will head over to Yorktown, the place where Gen. Washington accepted Gen. Cornwallis’ surrender. This was the last battle of the American Revolution and the start of our new nation. What a fabulous and fun way to end a rich unit!
