Conditions of Use
October was an excellent month in fifth grade. We accomplished a lot, did some neat activities, and we learned many new things. My three favorite activities were Fort Snelling, River Bend Nature Center, and the 13 Colonies Project. I hope you will be amazed as you read about them.
First, I would like to write about Fort Snelling.
Next, I will explain about the River Bend field trip.
Finally, I would like to tell you about the 13 Colonies Project.
1st up is Fort Snelling. We learned a lot on the trip and I would like to tell you some things I learned on the trip. First I learned that Fort Snelling was a fort built for war but had never encountered a battle. Instead they sent troops to other places to battle. Next I learned that Fort Snelling was built where the Mississippi River and the Minnesota River meet so they can control the rivers for boats or other things. Finally I learned that Fort Snelling was a place where the solders could train, eat, and sleep.
Next I’ll talk about what I learned during River Bend. I learned that each soil layer is called a horizon. I also learned that River Bend used to be a body of water. Finally I learned about different rock.
Last but not least: the 13 colonies project. I leaned that there are 3 parts, the New England Colonies, the Middle colonies, and the Southern Colonies. Next I learned that there are only 13 colonies. And finally I learned that Anna Hutchinson and Roger Williams were kicked out of their homes.
I hope you understand why October was such a spectacular month for me in fifth grade. This month was fascinating, but I can’t wait to see what November brings. Fifth grade is UNBELIEVEABLE!
