Expedition
We launched our Social Studies Expedition today. We started with a silent gallery walk. During this walk we looked at lots of pictures and artifacts. Our goal was to try to figure out what we were going to be studying during this expedition. This activity is often called a mystery piece. Having a bit of a mystery to solve heightens excitement and builds curiosity about what we will be studying.  We will do this again when we start the second case study of this Expedition. We will reveal tomorrow what this first case study will be about. If you know what our first Expedition is about, please don't tell your child. Let them have some time to think about it and wonder about it. This will really increase their engagement in the study. See below for some photos that show how interested we were in the artifacts we were studying.
