5th Grade Social Studies

 Mrs. Remmers’ class took a quick trip to the east coast last Friday.  Through Google Hangouts they connected to another 5th grade class and then traded yes and no questions to determine the home state of each school.  Questions like, “Are you west of the Mississippi?  Does your state border the coast?  Is it landlocked?” are a few examples.  Hawthorne’s 5th graders correctly guessed the state of New York before their counterparts came up with Nebraska.  Then both classes took turns sharing some pertinent facts about each state.  It was a great way to learn a little more about our country and wonder of wonders - 5th graders in New York are a lot like 5th graders in Nebraska!
