The 3H Crew is very excited to be participating in the Landmark Games this year. They have paired up with Mrs. Bushey’s 5th graders to take part in this challenging global competition. We are competing in the Primary A Category. This is how it works: 30 classes from all over the world have chosen a landmark and written 9 clues about the landmark including clues that relate to longitude/latitude, its hemisphere; and a date. Last week, we sent in our landmark clues to Mr. Smith, the project moderator.

Now the fun begins…each week Mr. Smith will send out the first 3 clues for each of the 30 landmarks. The 3H Crew members have been paired up with a 5th grade partner and will start trying to decipher the clues using research tools on ipads, computers, maps, and globes. Each week, the partners will be able to ask a yes/no question which will be emailed to the participating classes to try and narrow down where in the world the landmark is. It will be fun sending and receiving emails from classes in Russia, Slovenia, Australia, the Czech Republic, and all over the USA.

At the end of the 3 weeks, we will send in our final guesses to Mr. Smith and see how we did! Each week, I will be posting the Landmark Game clues here on our blog, so that students can continue the research at home. This is a great family project!

Wish us luck!

Team Tatem Tigers

To help us learn about what our community was like in the 1700s, each of the 3H Crew became an apprentice to a master craftsman (who was an actual resident of Haddonfield in the 1700's) The apprentices used modern tools (iPads and laptops) to learn all about their trade. Each apprentice created a poster and then used the Explain Everything app to share what they learned.

The 3H Crew started 2014 by learning about coding. We started this morning by watching a video on the Computer Science Education Week web site (http://csedweek.org/learn ) and writing code using laptops to help the Angry Bird catch the pig. In the afternoon, we tried out our new found skills and used the Hopscotch app on the iPads. The 3H Crew found out it takes critical thinking skills and a lot of experimentation when it comes to computer coding! The students were very excited about writing code and many shared how they were going to go home and continue writing code using the programs we tried out today in school. They sure make their teacher proud! Please follow these links to see some of the finished programs:

To learn about the community, each one of the 3H Crew became an expert about one of our "community" vocabulary words. They researched the meaning, created a gesture and a vocabulary card to help classmates remember the word, tried to make connections of how the word fit into "community" and then taught the class their special word. After all the words were taught, the 3H Crew worked together to group like words, and ultimately created a huge community graphic organizer(see below).

The 3H Crew learned all about biographies. First they read a biography, took notes, and then used the information learned to create a project about the subject of their biography. Students could choose to create a PowerPoint Presentation, Glog, or accordion book. The final activity was a Biography Bash where the students "became" the person they learned about and gave a speech to classmates, parents, and other special guests.

The 3H Crew is very interested in learning all about the history of our community. Today we learned about how architecture has changed in the 300 years Haddonfield has been around. After learning about different styles of architecture, we hit the streets and became architecture detectives. We checked out 7 houses and after answering a series of questions, determined what style of architecture each house was. Here we are in front of a great example of a Queen Anne style Victorian house.
