Tracking the Tropics

Fourth Graders in Renay Rigney’s Quest Classes have been practicing their skills at reading latitude and longitude by tracking tropical storms and hurricanes in real time. Several years ago, a large tracking map was painted on the walls of the PUE Cafeteria. The 4th Grade Quest students recently used it to pinpoint the coordinates for Hurricane Matthew. Despite the fact that September is the peak month for tropical activity, Matthew proved to be an October surprise for the record books.

4th Grade Quest Learns About Personalities

Picture of Personality Tree
Students in Renay Rigney’s 4th Grade Quest Classes recently learned about their individual personalities in a unit based on the book, The Treasure Tree by John Trent.  This tale of four unlikely friends: a Lion, Otter, Golden Retriever, and Beaver took them on an adventure to search for the four golden keys to the Treasure Tree. Along the way, the friends discover that their different personalities are some of the greatest treasures they have. The students learned about the importance of character traits such as leadership, compassion, and loyalty. After completing a personality survey, they added their pictures to our “Personali-Tree” to illustrate which animal from the story best matched their own particular personality.
