4th Grade Events
The PTA is excited to have the opportunity to present some great programs for our 4th grade classes at Park Western. Below are some of the events that our fourth grade students can participate in this year. If you are interested in donating to any of these events or volunteering please contact us!
Walk Through California --
This presentation is designed to allow fourth grade students to actively participate in a lively retelling of California’s rich history. Through the use of games, music, and storytelling, history will come alive! The program focuses on major events that shaped our great state of California. Drama, dance, games, and music support students’ listening skills, vocabulary development, history and geography standards. A large topographical map of California is built for students to experience California’s geography hands-on.
Banning Museum --
The Banning Museum engages visitors in a living history experience, showing how the family lived, worked, and entertained. Through its educational programs, it gives third, fourth and ﬁfth-graders opportunities to experience life in the 19th century while they learn more about Phineas Banning, father of the Port of Los Angeles.
