Last week, fifth graders in Mrs. Ellis' class took a field trip to Jack Jackter Intermediate School in Colchester to spend a good portion of their day with their Equal This buddies. Students split up into two different groups to listen to presenters. One presenter was from Dime Savings Bank and talked to students about estimation and using a checkbook.
The other presenter was from Young Audiences and talked with students about polygons through zentangle; an interesting new artform.
Overall students had a great day spending time with their buddies! We are looking forward to seeing them at the end of February on our Home Depot field trip!
