RES Student News

The 5th graders earlier this year learned about the early explorers, their challenges and success, and ultimately how their exploration helped shape the world we know. Building upon this lesson they identified characteristics that all explorers may have and chose a modern day explorer to research. Students conducted research on their chosen explorer looking at their characteristics, their inspiration, challenges, and the legacy they leave behind. Lastly, they wrote a first person narrative paper that they then presented in costumes that were meant to represent their explorers to the students of RES.
