CORE CONNECTIONS for Extended Learning…
LANGUAGE ARTS: John Mellencamp is a famous rock singer from Seymour, Indiana. When a singer writes words for a song, they are like a poem and are called ‘lyrics’. Have some fun writing some poetry of your own with this shape poetry activity.
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: On the BEVERAGES (page 5) menu at Larrison’s Diner, you can have a large soft drink from FOUNTAIN DRINKS for $1.69 or a bottled soft drink for $1.45. If you are feeling very thirsty, could the large fountain drink be the best deal, even with a higher price? Why?
