5th grade students at Lyman Elementary had some really cool book projects on display. Mrs. Richards class did Book Buffets where students had to divided the project into 5 sections, character, Introduction, setting, plot/summary, and your opinion of the book. Mrs. Marines class did Pizza Book Projects and each "pizza" was divided into 8 slices that highlighted the theme, characters, setting, conflict, rising action, climax, what they would change if they were the author and favorite part. Direct quotes and page numbers needed to be included. Each student presented the projects to the class and were scored on a rubric. Students did an amazing job.

Lyman Elementary: For the 21/22 School Year Peer Helpers voted on what they’d like to do to give back to our Lyman community. The whole Project, from start to finish, was Peer Helper run. During the month of May, Peer Helpers collected items to donate to York County Shelter. Their goal was to collect 6 boxes. In the end they collected 8 boxes of items (some of which didn’t make it into the picture), which consisted of toiletries, linens, art supplies, food, etc. To Celebrate their success, Peer Helpers hosted a whole grade Pizza Party Picnic. Wonderful job, Peer Helpers, on learning about Service and Responsibility!

He talked to the students about different trees we have in Maine, how trees grow, how long they live, and ways to keep them healthy.

The 2nd graders at Lyman Elementary participated in a Town Project. The students learned about economics by studying topics such as goods vs. services, exchanging money, scarcity, and making good economic choices. As a final project, they each got the opportunity to create their own business. They produced their own handmade goods and sold their items or services to their second grade peers. Some businesses included a paper airplane store, a keychain store, and a Pokemon card store!
