Our 2nd graders are learning about what life was like for pioneers. As part of this unit, they are researching what the houses were like. They spend time each day talking about different parts of the log cabin. Then, as a team, using household objects, they construct what they learned! This is a great way to incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) in a Social Studies lesson. It also provides a valuable hands-on experience for the students. What a fun way to learn!
