Interested fourth graders at South Grove had an opportunity extend their studies of explorer Christopher Columbus with an optional Brown Bag session, a voluntary alternative to traditional recess. Several students elected to participate in this two-day information and crafts activity, where they learned about the cartography (map making) related to Columbus’ voyages and created their own “New World Map.”
