2nd March

The children worked on the written presentation for Ancient Civilization. The Egyptians wrote and essay, the Aztecs made a booklet, the Chinese wrote a letter and the Chinese a chart.
Tomorrow they work will work on the technological and the Musical presentations for the ancient civilizations.

The children also designed the main character for the "My novel" project. They did an activity where they had to write a description of the main character and then ask a friend to draw the character as described. If the drawing and the writer's imagined character didn't match, he would add more details to the description.
