Fourth-grade students at Robinwood Lane Elementary celebrated the end of the American Revolution reading workshop on March 9.

All of the students created a synthesized battle that was part of the American Revolution. Fourth-grade teacher Jan Zorman taught the American Revolution using a cross between social studies and reading. The students learned everything from the beginning of the Revolution to the Treaty of Paris. The students had pizza, cake, juice and several other snacks as a way to celebrate the end of the American Revolution.

Although the students loved the celebration and being able to eat red, white and blue snacks, they enjoyed learning about the Revolution and the different battles and the people involved that took place during the Revolution.

“I liked to learn about Paul Revere and John Hancock because I thought of ‘the red coats are coming,’ or the big signature by Hancock,” said Lily Haase who did the Battle of Charleston.

“I picked a battle we talked about in class and I liked it so I knew a lot about it,” said Jimmy Carkido who did the Battle of Fallen Timbers.

“I looked up battles of the American Revolution and I found one that Mrs. Zorman didn’t talk about so I picked it,” said Gavyn Magada who did Battle of Harlem Heights.

The students are looking forward to continuing the reading workshop in their book clubs. They will then debate the British against the English which the students become very invested in.
