This Year's Theme is...

Amazing America!

 

When we tallied the 2015-2016 topic choices from the survey the GT Students took, we found out that we could incorporate all of the topics in one big theme of America.  With so many divergent and varied topics, our theme became Amazing America.  Unlike the traditional study of states and capitals, we ventured out on unique, surprising pursuits.  Some of our research will take us to Bullfighting, Japanese NASA, Chris Kyle, Pro Football, Totems, Roswell, Music, Land Forms, 911, the 13 original colonies, and some favorites:  The White House, American Seal, Medal of Honor, Bald Eagles, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and Mt. Rushmore. 

 

 

You can see why we are calling this year’s Unit of Study, AMAZING AMERICA!
