We are off to a solid start in 5th and 6th grade. It can be an adjustment for everyone as students get used to more informational text and writing upper grade answers. It is also an adjustment for me as I get more familiar with St. Paul’s. But we have hit the ground running. In social studies, we spent some time studying geography and how even professional sports are affected by the five themes of geography. Soon we will actually get into studying ancient civilizations and how they continue to still affect us today. In science, the kids have gotten to build some model cars and windmills as we learn how forces affect many aspects of our lives.
