Using Skills to Celebrate Presidents Day

1

Ms. Heather Loughran’s and Ms. Mary Arapas’ first-grade classes at Centre Avenue school celebrated Presidents Day by participating in festive activities that sharpened their literary and math skills, along with their knowledge on George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

For the assignment, students wore paper Abraham Lincoln hats and were split into groups. Each group rotated to five stations with either a George Washington or Abraham Lincoln theme. Students had to solve problems at each station through technology, writing, sorting, measuring or subtracting.
