Our two day week was packed full of Thanksgiving learning! We've been busy learning about the first Thanksgiving and sharing what we're thankful for. Today we completed a STEM project. We worked together with a group to build a Mayflower Ship that held the most Pilgrims (pennies.) Congratulations to George, Tanner, Finn and Karla! Their boat held over 200 pennies! We also made bracelets that help us to retell the story of the first Thanksgiving. Also watch for a Thankful Turkey book to come home in your child's backpack. Enjoy the break!

The Wautoma Area Fire Department visited Riverview Elementary today. Students at Riverview learned about what a volunteer firefighter does, ways to prevent fires and the importance of having a plan. They also received a few surprises from the firefighters.

Thank you to Mrs. Fischer for coming into our classroom last week to do a caramel apple sundae bar. As you can tell from the pictures, we really enjoyed it!
We also ended the week by getting our hands dirty in science. We've been talking about the needs of living things. We planted six different flowers and will be watching them to see which ones grow best. Ask your child for more details about this project!
