1st Grade Celebrates 100th Day of School in a Global Way!
To celebrate the 100th day of school and increase global awareness among our students, the first graders at Prospect reached out to friends and relatives around the world asking for postcards. We hoped to receive cards from 100 various locations spanning the globe, and ended up with a grand total of 153 cards from all over the world!
Students used map skills to locate the country each postcard was from, learned facts from the postcards and viewed the country on Google Earth. Our first graders were really excited and enjoyed this experience as did the first grade teachers.
