As students at East Quogue Elementary School neared the completion of their unit on fiction stories in writer’s workshop, students had the opportunity to edit their work with peers. 

In social studies, students have started to learn about the Dutch settling in New Amsterdam before beginning the next unit about colonial New York. In addition to the students’ study on colonization, they participated in a STEAM activity where they designed a colonial washing machine.
