    Fifth Grade has been experimenting with red clay this year. An experiment that taught us that red clay is a HUGE MESS!!!!
    As they were studying
    Check out the history of the Southwest, they learnedKey Largo page for information about Adobe houses. We found out, by researching the internet, that there are still villages that still live in adobes that were created long-ago. There is a ceremony to add more mud to the walls to keep them strong.
    It was interesting to learn that there is so little rain, the occupants of the modern day adobes do not worry about their homes washing away in a rain storm!
    The students worked together so the adobes they built stack on top of each other in a similar fashion of the real ones.
    These adobes can be seen in the display case in
    the main hallway.

    I am SO excited to be at our wonderful new school at Margaret.
