Mrs. Meyer’s fourth grade social studies class is studying the regions of the United States. This week they studied the states located in the Southeast region. As part of an extended lesson, the students focused on the state of Louisiana and the big celebration of Mardi Gras that takes place there each year in New Orleans. The students read “Henri Goes to the Mardi Gras” by Mildred Whatley Wright. Afterwards, the students created their own Mardi Gras masks.
