Rice Creek Elementary Third Grade Presents South Carolina History

Follow me on Twitter at!/scienceesl
The third graders here in South Carolina learn about the state's history in social studies all year long. Rice Creek has the students put on a play at the end of the year to share what they learned. DJ was very proud to have a speaking part in the play.

The Farm~It Feels Like Home To Me

Follow me on Twitter at!/scienceesl

While my grandparents no longer live on the farm, they still own it and my Uncle Jerry still farms it. Kelsey asked Uncle Jerry if he and Aunt Cindy would take us out there so they could look around. While things have changed, it still feels like home to me.

The house from the driveway, looking at the main door.

The front door side of the house. The house looks so much smaller now, not sure if it is because we are grown up, or if it's because Grandma and Grandpa don't live there any more. 

Looking up the hill from the front yard. 

The renter has chickens and a chicken coop. Uncle Jerry collects the eggs, so he let the kids help him. They gathered over 30. 

 Not sure why DJ was making this face!

Soon to be corn or soy bean field.
