First Graders do Math Too!

The 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders aren't the only kids studying math, of course. Ms. Leverett-King's first grade class has been working on some amazing stuff. Some people would call this kind of geometry "fifth grade math." Ms. Leverett-King's class calls it fun!

Here's how they started learning how to draw three-dimensional objects in two dimensions. In other words, they are making something that looks 3-D on a flat piece of paper. We wish we could show all their great work on the blog, but we don't have room. If you're curious, check out the display right outside their classroom.

Tune in tomorrow and Thursday to see what they did next!
