This year was our first try at a Nebraska Tasting Party. The students wrote letters to NE companies telling them about our culminating event and asked for edible donations. It was fun once the replies started rolling in! Even though we did not hear back from some of the companies, we enjoyed samples from several places in NE. We tasted: pie, popcorn, pickled asparagus, salad dressing, pancakes, beans, bread, chocolate, and jellies! It was quite a delicious party!
My students chose a famous Nebraskan to represent. They each researched and then wrote a report on the person. They created a slide show and recorded their report using an ipad. Mr. Horst then put it all together and used YouTube to publish the "movies." Listen to your child's report using the link below.

The Middle School visitation was today. What a welcome we had! The 6th grade band played songs for us and Mr. Rischling told the 4th graders about the opportunities they will get when it comes to band and choir. Then we went on a tour of the middle school. We ended the morning with a question and answer session.
