Happy Holidays!

Field Trip

This was an exciting week in Fourth Grade! We were able to go on our very first field trip of the year! We spent Tuesday morning exploring what it would have been like to live in Charleston during the onset of The American Revolution. We started our trip by exploring the Old Exchange Building and we even got to go into the dungeon! Next, we went to the Heyward-Washington House to get a glimpse of where Thomas Heyward Jr. lived when he wasn’t doing important American Revolution tasks! Lastly, we went to The Powder Magazine to learn about the weapons that were used during the American Revolution

Social Studies

This week in Social Studies, we learned all about The Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s Ride, and The Shot Heard Round the World. Students have been working hard to put together a timeline of significant events leading up to the American Revolution. We are so excited to see all of their hard work on display during our next presentation!

New addition!

Last week we welcomed in our new teacher, Ms. Sophie! Ms. Sophie will be taking over for Ms. Mansi after Winter Break. She has spent the last week in the classroom getting to know everyone and learning all about what we do at The Cooper School. We are so thankful to have her and know that she will be a great addition to our Fourth Grade Community!
