Fourth Grade - Capitol Tour

Fourth graders.  Before we go to the state capitol in Madision, let's do a virtual visit.  The following link will take you to the website we looked at today with Mr. Baneck and Mr. Wilhorn.  Enjoy your visit, look carefully, and find something new that we didn't mention in class.  Thanks!

Origami Yoda says, "New one you must make."

"You must."

"MUST!" shouted Yoda.

Make a new what?  Must?  Why?  All that is to be determined during today's reading.  In the meantime here is a picture of a statue of William Shakespeare.  Trust me.  This will be important.

And if you are curious, in another book entitled Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things, we learn that William Shakespeare was good at cursing ... in a creative sort of way.  Here's a website that will allow you to create your own William Shakespeare curses.  Seriously.  Click here.

If the Twist we must learn, than who better to teach it than the creator of the Twist, Chubby Checker?
