Second-grade students at West Side Elementary brought their favorite parts of the community to school with them as a final project for their first social studies unit lesson.
West Side second-grade teacher Kim Pless explained the students had just finished the social studies lesson on communities. During the lesson, students learned about what makes up a community and what makes communities special. To finish out the unit, students were asked to build a model of a place in their community that was special to them.
