Mr. Adem

Every year our 5th grade students attend Go Wild at Nantahala Outdoor Center

GREEN Charter's 5th grade students attended an overnight trip to the Nantahala Outdoor Center. They had an excellent trip white water rafting and hiking.

Back in the Time to Reconstruction Period

The Fifth grade students traveled back in time to the Reconstruction period in their recent visit to Roper Mountain Science Center. Students visited cabins of slaves and sat in actual wooden desks in the Rector School, which was constructed in 1898 by farmers who wanted to send their students to school. There was no time for play, they got busy using their chalkboards to answer questions about slave rights and the amendments to the Constitution! After visiting the schoolhouse, students ventured into the actual home of a slave owner and his family. They experienced the cotton seed picking process and sung songs about Bulweival. Only if they picked all of their seeds out of their cotton, did they earn the right to take their cotton home. Finally, they got their hands dirty digging the garden to prepare the crops and learned about the hardships of owing their masters more money than they earned.

Museum Trip

GREEN was on a field trip to see Tutankhamun: Return of the King exhibit at the State Museum in Columbia. It was an awesome experience for the students, as well as a great way for them to gain some authentic experiences; helping to develop their schema.
