Math: Students completed a math test today over division, and multiplication and division numbers stories.
Social Studies: We learned that many pioneers moved to Michigan on the Erie Canal, and some of them were immigrants from Europe. So many people moved to Michigan after the Erie Canal was built that Michigan had enough people to become a state.
