We had a great day in fifth grade this week! We began our new topic by watching a short video to uncover what it is - Israel! We jumped right in by discussing what we knew about Israel, and even got to hear from fellow students who have been there. Our first stop was Jerusalem, where we discovered tons of archeological findings and spoke about their importance of the city of Jerusalem. Then we headed to Beer Sheva in the Negev where Avraham lived and found out about the difference between Israel then and now and why our past is so important. We finished our long day of exploring with some Hebew reading, can't wait to see where we'll go next week!
