This was written when I was in 6th grade. I am thinking we were studying how to write newspaper articles.
“Wednesday, February 5th was the day for picking countries in social studies,” said Mrs. Anderson, sixth-grade teacher at Highland School. “The boys and girls will each give a report on a country in Europe and tell about their country, the climate, geography, costumes, and people. Each report will take place when they come along in the social studies book,” continued Mrs. Anderson, “The purpose of the reports is for the children to get accounted to the countries for upper grades.”
Some children wanted the same countries, so Mrs. Anderson let one have the northern half and the other have the southern half.
