This year Washington Township has adopted the Wit and Wisdom curriuclum for grades 3-5. This curriculum is designed to integrate reading, writing, language, speaking and listening skills.This curriculum builds knowledge of key topics in history, science, and literature through the study of various authentic texts.
By reading and responding to stories and nonfiction texts, we will build knowledge of the following topics:
Module 1: A Great Heart
Module 2: Extreme Settings
Module 3: The Redcoats Are Coming!
Module 4: Myth Making
In this first module, A Great Heart, we will examine the complexity of the human heart. Not only is the heart a vital organ in our bodies, it is also a symbol of human emotions. Students will explore what it means to have a “great heart,” both literally and figuratively.
