    In February of 2020, LFP sixth graders used Black History Flashcards, the encyclopedia and websites to research important black Americans.  They shared their research through the creation of a Google web page.  Unfortunately, the coronavirus "stay-at-home" order caused us to stop research before everyone could finish their web pages.

    Sixth Grade Black Out Poems

    6c

    Using text from popular 6th grade fiction titles, our sixth graders carefully selected words to write a "black out poem."  Next, they illustrated their poem to black out or color over the words that were not needed for the poem. This was a challenging activity and all of us were learning how to successfully "write" a black out poem.  Students who decided to share their poems online are featured on our website.  View their poems here.

  • Washington State Animal Research Web Pages - 4th Grade

    Posted by Frank Kleyn on 3/17/2019

    The Shoreline School District’s library program teaches students to seek and research topics found in nonfiction books. Our students are motivated to learn about our local animals and it’s important that we have up-to-date books for them to select and read. 

    For the 2018-2019 school year, the Shoreline Foundation granted the Lake Forest Park Library $650 to purchase up-to-date nonfiction books about local animals.
    books
    Fourth graders used text features to research information about Washington State animals.  Students used the Google Sites application to share their findings through the creation of single web page that describes their animal.  

    Thank you, Shoreline Foundation!  Our students will enjoy reading these books and learning about local animals for years to come. 

    Along with the books, students used our district's subscription to Britannica Encyclopedia to research their animal. All images were found via Google Images and were labeled for non-commercial reuse.
