In Mrs. Chrissy Vandercook’s fifth grade class at JGE students chose a historical fiction chapter book at their Lexile level which was centered on events in either the Civil War or Revolutionary War. They completed a reading journal, discussions, timeline of their historical event, and character analysis. To finish off the book study, students designed and created projects which incorporated their personal interests. Rachel Campbell baked a cake with her story summary written on it in edible ink and made two recipes from the time period, including Queen Cakes and homemade apple butter!
