4th Grade Nebraska Program Videos

Mrs. Anderson's class decided to change things up a bit this year and record their Nebraska History reports ahead of time.  It was a learning experience for us all, but the kids had a great time and did an amazing job.

The videos are in the form of a playlist, but feel free to click at the bottom on "Playlist" and you can view all the videos to pick a different student's video.


Skype to New Jersey

Our students found out just how different New Jersey was today!  We were able to finish the year with a Mystery Skype to Parkway Elementary in Ewing New Jersey.

While we were sunny and bright, New Jersey was chilly and wet. Our students were able to listen to their students describe what it was like to live through hurricane Sandy and how much damage was done and how things looked different now than they used to.  There was a lot of discussion around the room as they described the boardwalk getting washed into the ocean.

We had students working on google maps to view the location and we also had students researching the effects of Hurricane Sandy and finding photos of the damage in Ewing.  It was great to see the students utilizing the internet to dive deeper into what they were learning about.

We found out a lot of fun facts about New Jersey and Ewing including:

  • They grow wheat and corn
  • Some wildlife seen around their town are raccoons, squirrels and rats.
  • They have beaches, forests, and casinos.
  • Thomas Edison was born in their state.
  • Trenton is their state capitol.
  • Their hometown of Ewing is 37,000.
  • Their school is a K-5 grade school and has over 500 students.
