At Eagle Creek, we plan challenging lessons.
Grade 1: Coral Reefs
These students compared and contrasted coral from a real ocean reef with the coral garden they grew in class. This prompted the study of many vocabulary words, such as texture, spiny, polyps, calcium carbonate, and exoskeleton.
Grade 4: Metacognition
As these students read The Whipping Boy, they practiced "real" reading, which involves making a connection between the text and something else, such as another story or a real life moment. Such intense thinking solidifies comprehension skills.
Grade 6: Model United Nations
At the MUN Conference in New York City, our students represented the Republic of Panama. In preparation for the event, they studied the geography, culture and government of several Central and South American countries. They also learned the principles and functions of the United Nations so they could join inter-school committees while in NYC.
