In LMC, students spent the last month of school, learning about animal homes and building a model for one (kindergarten), writing original Gerald and Piggie stories (first grade), studying another country (2nd grade), researching and then designing posters about Chicago history (3rd grade), learning how to be good digital citizens (4th grade) and creating a book trailer for a favorite book (5th grade).

In Kindergarten, students learned about different animal homes, why they are built the way they are, and the materials they use, in connection to their science unit. Next students paired up to plan, sketch and build a model home for a chimpanzee, wasp, beaver, prairie dog or hummingbird using recycled materials
In first grade, students thought about the beloved characters Gerald and Piggie to come up with their personality characteristics. Then they paired up to brainstorm and write original Gerald and Piggie stories using those characteristics. Next they typed up the stories, and added and colored in Gerald and Piggie using Pixie.
