Studying the Stone Age through Different Lenses
October 5, 2022
In a joint English and history class, Browne 5th graders used the literary device of symbolism to represent how geography influences a society’s culture or shared characteristics. The students recently read the book Wolf Brother. In class, the students divided into groups and, while using the book’s details and map for reference, determined the attributes of their group’s clan and then designed a custom banner for their clan. This was just the first part of a series of interdisciplinary projects that will happen between English and history during the 5th graders’ study of the Stone Age.
