Learning from 7th Graders
First grade students were invited to seventh grade to learn more about our government. Mr. Eckenrod and Mrs. Van Wyhe work together to help seventh grade students put together a presentation which explains our local government including county, state and school. After the seventh grade researched the information, they created a presentation which they shared with the first grade students. Our students were told about various government positions and the people who work in those jobs. The first grade students answered various questions throughout the presentation. Some were given a sweet treat for their hard work or good listening.
The first grade students were very excited to visit a classroom in the middle school. The seventh grade students did a great job keeping the attention of their young audience and helping them learn just a little bit more about their world. This is a wonderful learning experience for everyone involved. Thank you Mr. Eckenrod, Mrs. Van Wyhe, and seventh grade students for inviting us into your classrooms!
