Third grade students explore the world

Recently, as part of the 3rd grade social studies curriculum, the students from Mrs. Steere’s classroom created paper mache globes representing our world’s continents and oceans. Over the course of 2 days of “work sessions”, students created, assembled, and labeled their globes taking special care to place each continent in relation to the equator.

This tremendous learning experience would not have been possible without the help of several parent volunteers and the assistance from elementary art teacher teacher Mrs. Wheeler-Stapf.

Thank you so much to all who collaborated on this worthwhile, messy, and fun activity!
