Second-graders Study Rivers
As part of their unit on rivers in social studies, second-graders learned about rivers around the world, including the Nile, the Amazon, the Ganges, and Ohio rivers. Second-grade teacher Danielle Necessary said for each river, students discussed questions such as, where is the river located? What animals rely on the river? How do people and communities rely on the river? Students worked in groups to build parts of a model of the rivers. “Students also did an independent project at home where they built a model of a river somewhere in the world and shared their project with the class on the app, Flipgrid,” Necessary said.
