Students in Indigo (grades 3&4) have been exploring the topics of place value and addition through open ended, real world problems. Most recently, students have been examining the data from the Census to determine the populations of different L.A. areas. They are comparing numbers, looking at percentages and statistics, and soon, will be mapping the areas they are researching.
Blue Class (grades 2&3) launched their study of the Ballona Wetlands by learning about the four main types of Wetlands: Bogs, Fens, Marshes, and Swamps. Students researched a type of wetland with a small group, took notes, and created a diorama to share with the class all they learned. They followed this up with their first trip to the Ballona Wetlands.
