Social Studies has been really fun this year. We had fun with Social Studies in the book. We take turns reading paragraphs in the book. We learned about changes in transportation, the Wright Brothers, and the airplane. We also learned about changes in our homes like the vacuum cleaner. Did you know that Edison and Latiner invented the first practical light bulb. There used to be box TVs in a house!! Josephine Cochran invented the first practical dishwasher. We learned how to read a flow chart. Chapter 4 was about communities long ago. It was about Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, Ancient China, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, and Mali. We did chapter reviews. Then Chapter 6 was about our country's history. There are many more pages to tell you about, but I do not want to write them all.
