Sumter County Primary School students in Ms. Laura Williams and Ms. Makayla Cobb's Pre-K class had a blast incorporating a camping theme in their math and literacy learning activities. The students identified numbers and counted the matching number of mini marshmallows, read many books, studied what type of weather is best for camping, and explored supplies that are necessary for outdoor camping trips.
To end the week, the students enjoyed S’mores and helped their teachers put up a classroom tent.
