This week, we learned about the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark Expedition through a couple of plays put on by the fourth graders. Each group took time to personally read and understand their story. Then they practiced, prepared, and performed the plays for their peers. Students did an excellent job of making these stories come to life. Not only did we learn about these important parts of our nation's history, we also put a special emphasis on reading our scripts with expression, because no one wanted to see a play put on by a bunch of robots. Kudos to the kids for doing an exceptional job!
