Northport third graders enjoy unit interactive unit of study

Northport K-8 School third grade students in Melanie Polascak’s and Glenda
Taylor’s classes have been working on a combined unit of study to determine
learning data and to evaluate the effectiveness of class rotations on the study
of Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Students and instructors used a variety of
resources to bring the unit of study full circle. Culminating activities to
bring resolution to the unit occured recently in the teachers’ classrooms such as
making pinatas from Mexico, making moose antlers from Canada and learning to
play dominos and how to do the limbo from the Caribbean. Students also enjoyed
a variety of food and drink samples from each country. Pictured are third grade
students from both classes enjoying the lesson!
