Today I learned about the Confederation Period in social studies. I learned about the need for a stronger central government and the events that led to the writing of the Constitution. I also watched a video called "Shh! We're Writing the Constitution" which is based on the book of the same name by Jean Fritz. I learned that in May my friends in fifth grade will be performing the musical based on this book.
Next I visited the library to check out books and to listen to a story read by the school librarian.
