Day 15 - Learning about Burlington: Then, & Now - Mrs. Boucher - Francis Wyman Grade 3

This post first appeared on Mrs. Boucher's Blog 

This week, students have been reading and talking about the town we live in, Burlington. While reading Burlington: Then and Now, we have had some great discussions and shared some great knowledge about what Burlington is like now and what it was like in the 1800s. During the reading, students have been learning how to highlight important information, TTQA answers (Turn the Question Around,) and how to take and organize notes.  Our essential question is "How has Burlington changed since 1799?"

The excitement to learn Burlington history is brewing in 216!
