Mrs.Hunt's Fourth Grade

Mrs. Hunt's Fourth Grade Class

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.

A quick reminder that the students have two projects due next week.

Fourth grade will be having the Christmas Performance on Dec. 6th @ 9:00. We will be having the performance in our new building. Everyone is invited to come and join the fun.

Their Circuit Project is due Dec. 6th and their Caravels are due 7th. Each are worth 200 pts. each.

Science Project: Circuits

The students are to  build their own circuits. They are to chose either parallel or series. I want them to have fun with this project. Try and use materials that you have around the house.

Social Studies: Caravels

 The students are to build their own Caravel ship. They have been learning about explorers. They have been identifying the different parts of the Caravel ships. 

We have an Early Release on Dec. 8th @ 11:30. 

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at 399-2121 or shunt@geageckos.org

Thanks for all of your support!

Mrs. Hunt
