During our cross curricular unit on Native Americans, students visit the Burke Museum at University of Washington, and explore the cultures of Northwest Coast Native Americans.
Native American 4th Grade “Museum”
As a culmination of learning through the Native American unit, students share their knowledge and display their self-created artifacts in our classroom museum. All grades, as well as parents and families are invited to tour the artifacts in the “museum.”
Washington State Capitol Tour
As part of our study of government, 4th grade students enjoy a day trip to Olympia, and experience a guided tour of the Capitol and Legislative buildings. Students observe the three branches of government at work, and take part in a mock trial at the Temple of Justice.
To celebrate the end of our baseball unit, each spring the 4th grade class and their families have the option to attend a Mariner’s game as a group. This fun tradition is a great community celebration and a memorable experience for the 4th graders.
Famous Washingtonian Presentations
In the final social studies unit of the year, students research an individual who has made significant contributions to Washington State. Students present their findings in an autobiographical presentation, both written and oral.
