Our fourth grade ELA teachers set up a very cool and fun way to review all that they have learned and are still learning this year! Their classrooms became operating rooms and students became surgeons. They studied case files of “patients” and answered questions about them, looked over x-rays and other lab work to make predictions and interferences. What a neat way to be hands on with learning!
