Reflections on Jason Chin


Yesterday, we were given the wonderful opportunity to listen to Jason Chin, a non-fiction author. We loved his books Coral Reefs and Redwoods! He talked to us about how he collects the research for his books, and also how he does his illustrations. What did you find most interesting about his presentation? What were your favorite things he told you? Please write three to four sentences reflecting on his visit and what you learned and found interesting. Please check your capital letters and punctuation.

Wondering about Westward Expansion

We have been building background knowledge for our Westward Expansion Unit. We've learned about the Lewis and Clark Expedition. In library, we learned some information about supplies needed to take on the six month journey west. What are at least three wonders you would like to investigate further? Please read each other's comments and try not to repeat posts. Be sure to write in complete sentences with the correct capitalization and punctuation.
