2-3 HBON Middle Elementary

The Middle Elementary students have been working very hard to learn about communities. They can identify an urban, suburban and rural community. Back in October, they took a trip to the Mayor’s office, the Ann Arbor District Library and the Courthouse to learn the importance of how the government works in the city, to learn about the history of Ann Arbor and to hear from Honorable Judge Conlin about how the judicial system works. Through reading about different types of communities, we wrote fictional stories about a community that included a setting, characters, problem and a solution using the writing process. Students took their knowledge to the next level by working together to create a 3 dimensional community that has all the components of that specific community. Math was integrated by learning about 2 and 3 dimensional shapes and finding the perimeter and area of their building shape.
