This week at the RBE Library, our 2nd graders will be coming into the library to learn about some of their Social Studies TEKS.
We will be focusing on the colonists who came to America on the Mayflower, the Pilgrims, Thanksgiving, the 13 Colonies, The Declaration of Independence, and Colonist Life.
Students will explore some stations about these social studies topics. Then they will use the iPads with a partner to share their learning. We will be using the Strip Design App to share the 3 Most Interesting things that we learn.
