2nd graders research the Australian territories
Our second grade students in Ms. O'Sullivan's, Ms. Chiappe's, and Mrs. Porte's classes are working together in small groups to research a territory in Australia. Each group is assigned a territory and students are using websites and books to find interesting facts. Students are using the Independent Investigation Method (IIM) to record their notes. This week, students will organize their notes into categories that reflect the facts they wrote down. This process is challenging, but we know our students are up to the task! Once their notes are organized, they will create a final project to showcase all they have learned about the Australian territories.
