We are students from Ms. Moore’s 6th grade social studies class. We are from Plano, Illinois in the United States of America. Our new school is Emily G. Johns, and it holds grades 4-6. Our mascot is the Jaguar. Go Jaguars!
At our school, we have many activities. Some activities include football, basketball, baseball, cheerleading, and softball. Our high schools varsity football team, the Plano Reapers, was state champs in 2006! They are doing great again this year and are one game away from the state championship again.
Plano, Illinois is in a rural area. If you came here, you would see many cornfields, but this is quickly changing. Many of the local farms are disappearing because of our large population growth. In the summer it gets very hot here, and in the winter it gets very cold. We have many stores to shop at, like Walmart, Khols, and Target. There are also fast food restaurants like McDonalds and Subway.
In our class, we focused heavily on geography first quarter. Currently, we are learning about culture. We have some interesting questions for other classrooms:
o Is there a lot of crime in your area?
o How long is your typical school day?
o What do you do for fun?
o What sports do you play?
o What kind of food do you have?
o What languages do you speak?
o What electronics do you have?
o What kind of stores do you have?
o What climate do you have?
o What are you learning?
