Project Work

We started the presentation of our projects today with Molly. Molly put a lot of hard work in and it has really paid off. Next week we’ll be sharing our projects with 4th class and learning lots of new facts about countries from around the world. Can’t wait!              

Clothes from Nigeria

      Yisola very kindly brought in some of her beautiful clothes that she wore in Nigeria.  The dresses are very ornate and the fabrics felt lovely. Yisola told us these are the kind of clothes people wear to church.

The Olympics
