November is upon us, and there is a chill to the air already! This morning was cold! We have begun some new topics of study in class this week. In science, we have moved on to the cell. Students will have Plato assignments as well as a cell model and cell catalog project. In language arts and history we will be blending these two subjects quite a bit over the next month or so. We have begun reading a book titled A Long Walk to Water, which takes place in Africa. The novel is a wonderful novel, but it does have some sad and difficult parts. We have also started a unit study on Ancient Africa in history.
