Upper Level Classroom News
Upper Elementary students at Cowles Montessori are busier than ever! As a team, students and teachers created
a timeline of important dates in Montessori history as part of a school-wide celebration for Cowles’ 20th Year! All primary, lower and upper elementary and middle school
classes united in the gymnasium to share timelines and memories.
To kick-off our studies of American History, a traveling history performer came to our music classroom and sang songs of the
Civil War. We later attended a Civil War production at the Civic Center witnessing the musical and acting talents of five performers.
In the fast-moving production, with each performer playing multiple roles, a synopsis of the time period was given. Presenting perspectives
from both North and South, students were able to get a view into that time in the United States.
