Mrs. Truitt's 5th-grade virtual students from AES, MHES, DES, and MES have been working on completing their Native American Research Project. They were able to choose a tribe in which we learned about in class. They completed two weeks worth of research and used it to form a presentation for the class. Part of their research project was building a model of the home that their chosen tribe would have lived in. This week they are teaching their classmates about their tribe using their research presentations and models! They have been so incredibly dedicated to this project and it shows in their work!

The virtual students at AES are even practicing their engineering skills. The fifth-grade students in Mrs. Kelsie Truitt's class include students from Dillsboro, Manchester, Moores Hill, and Aurora. They have been reading the book Shiloh during their virtual classes. They were given the challenge of completing a shelter for Shiloh. Students were tasked with finding supplies at home that they could build their Fictional Character Shiloh a shelter with. They had to research di...fferent types of shelters for dogs prior to beginning their building process as well as listing their materials. Throughout the building process, some students realized that their original plan might not work how they had anticipated. They tested out their original plan by seeing if their shelter could hold the weight that was placed on top of it (rock, dumbbell, etc). The students listed the strengths of their plan as well as their weaknesses. Once the students found their weaknesses they were able to problem-solve to come up with a better solution. At the end of the project students then researched various ways in which they could come up with to help animals in their own community! Some of the suggested ideas were to raise money/awareness through Lemonade stands, keeping the community clean and free of trash for animals, keeping the roadways clean of litter animals might find tasty, making sure animals are spayed and neutered, and searching for the homes of any lost animals in their neighborhood with the help of a parent.
