The program was coordinated by Union fourth-grade teacher Michelle Landers along with fellow teachers Alicia Williams and Marilyn Johnstone. It included 10 work stations using items such as pumpkins and gourds to put to use their knowledge.
“All fourth-grade subjects are involved including math, science, writing, and art,” said Williams. “The students have been working on the skills and this was a fun way to demonstrate their knowledge.”
Landers said the program is a great way for the classes to not only work on their academic skills, but to also learn to function as a team. Each station saw a team of six students who worked together to come up with answers to questions.
When the event was over, the students saw they not only learned the skills in class, but they had also learned how to put those skills to use.
“It was a busy day for all our fourth-graders,” said Union Principal Mike Masucci.
