Fifth Grade Native American Studies

As part of the Virginia Standards of Learning and the local assessments, the fifth grade students at Greendale Elementary School recently finished a project on the different groups of Native American Indians and their contributions to our society and how we live today.  The students were required to research and write a paper, make a presentation poster, and orally present their projects using a rubric and a set of criteria.  The students worked diligently in class over the course of a week and some were greatly surprised at all the information that was found about the Native Americans.
