CORE CONNECTIONS for Extended Learning…
LANGUAGE ARTS: One of the incredible books in the Jackson County History Archive was published in 1900. Take a look at this page from the Business Directory and try to figure out how the abbreviations chart was made. Can you make up abbreviations using the same system for objects in your classroom, playground or school building? Where would ‘Arthur Abbey’ fall on the alphabetical list of names in the directory?
SOCIAL STUDIES: Look closely at the map of Jackson County. Trace the border with your finger. Were all of the borders for the county drawn by people, or is there a natural border also? Can you find your home county on the historic Indiana map?
SCIENCE: Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge is nearly 8000 acres of natural beauty located near Seymour, Indiana. Why do the birds need places like this when they are traveling? Why do some birds travel or ‘migrate’?
MATHEMATICS: If you order a hamburger, onion rings and a small fountain drink at Larrison’s Diner, about how much will it cost if the prices are rounded to the nearest dollar?
