Bean Station third graders hard at work

Students in Linda Burchett’s third grade ELA class started the first semester with a new curriculum and have learned all about the sea. 

For their end of module task, students were asked to create a didactic wall panel to be displayed at the National Aquarium. They had to choose between a shark and a squid, two animals they have learned about in depth, and tell why and how to study the animal. They had to include a picture of the animal as well.

Burchett said, “I think they did a fantastic job with these projects. We have had our share of challenges in this trying time, but the students at Bean Station Elementary have risen up and been successful in their endeavors. I’d like to recognize them for their hard work. This has been a year of uncertainty for us all.”

Students and teachers in Grainger County Schools have faced challenges throughout the school year with some students working totally within a virtual environment, and all students sometimes working in a virtual environment.
