The next two to three weeks we will finish up our unit about Japan. It is hard to believe that it was about one month ago that the earthquake and tsunami occurred there. It was a stunning way to begin our unit and totally by coincidence. This next week I will introduce to the children their culminating project for China and Japan, creating a commercial to advertise either an ancient service or product for one of these cultures. It is a challenging assignment but very fun to do. (It will only be required of students who stay the second half.)
Finally, in case you are not aware, all Hazelbrook sixth graders will be going to Outdoor School the week of April 18th through 22nd. Seahawks will be gone from the 20th through the 22nd. Please make sure your child prepares warm clothing, rain gear, and long pants. Check the flyers that have been sent home or contact us if you need more information.
