Photo Album: Orchard First Graders Come Together To Create Awesome Support Web

All of Orchard's first grade students came together earilier this week to discuss what a community is.

Here are some of the responses:

Like a family
It's about family
Do stuff together
Working together
BIG or small
Solve problems 
Can be a meeting
Spend a lot of time together

Then, students created a yarn community web to represent that we are all connected and support each other. In order for the web to stay intact, each first grader needed to do their part and support the web, just like in a real community. This experiential learning activity served as a catalyst to jumpstart their deeper understanding of community and relationships.

Stay tuned for Part 2: Expanding to the Orchard Community.
