The fourth grade year is one in which children often shift from an emphasis on process to an equal focus on the end result. Students are expected to reflect on their learning and set attainable goals for themselves. Additionally, fourth graders can be called upon to collaborate and respect diversity in others. With these factors in mind, we complete many exciting projects together on our fourth grade journey. Throughout the year we will be engaging in hands-on outdoor activities to enhance the curriculum and build awareness of and appreciation for the natural world.
