Grandparents' Day

Fifth Grade's Explorer Postcards 

Preparing for Our Guests

 Eating Hamantaschen to Energize for Their Performance

After decorating Purim masks and graggers, the third graders and their grandparents selected between a Grandparents' Day interview, making words from "grandparents' day" tiles, writing about when their grandparents were their age, and a venn diagram.

They then participated in a newlyweds-style game

Using an app called Air Sketch to write their answers

One of the questions was "How many siblings does your grandparent have?"
