2-212 Shares their Knowledge with 1-208 !

Our second graders have been working so hard throughout their nonfiction reading unit, where they have studied various nonfiction topics across many books. To celebrate all of the knowledge they have gathered, the students met with a first grade class to teach a first grade buddy about their topic. Second graders shared what they have learned while also showing pictures and examples within their nonfiction texts. Congratulations to the students of 2-212 for becoming experts on their nonfiction topics!
