First grade students are learning about the three types of communities: rural, urban and suburban. The boys just finished their first at-home project where they were asked to construct a house and a commenting building to place in the suburban community of "Geraciville." Their buildings have been constructed and the boys just finished coloring the map so they can now put the buildings down. Each boy will have the opportunity to present their house and building to the class and then strategically place them on the community map. Presentations began this week.
