2nd Graders at EG Ross Become Cave Explorers

Students create an interactive volcano cave as part of Common Core unit.

The second grade team at E.G. Ross Elementary School put together an interactive cave to use as a vehicle for their Common Core State Standards unit.

"We allowed the students to brainstorm the idea and create a plan for the cave," said second grade teacher Steven Lamb. "We then connected it to the standards we were studying at the time. From there, each classroom had the students build and research parts of the cave theme. We brought it all together as a cave the whole school could explore with our second graders as the tour guides."

Ms. Eberly, Mrs. D'Angelo, Mrs. Marris and Mr. Lamb's second grade classes participated in this exciting project.

Enjoy the video below as second-grade tour guides take you through their cave!
