Our 6th grade writers were on parade today at GMS! Our 6th grade ELA teachers used the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as a short unit of study to teach writing an objective summary. Students researched the history of the parade using Macy’s interactive website to complete this task. This activity culminated with ELA students building their own parade floats using shoe boxes donated by Under the Carolina Moon! Proud of their parade and work! Happy Thanksgiving!
