Mentors on a Mission


Caroline G. Atkinson Intermediate School’s "Mentors on a Mission" hosted the Freeport Headstart students, where fifth-graders were paired up with the preschoolers to complete an activity about polygons.

Students listened to the story “The Greedy Triangle,” by Marilyn Burns, and followed the adventures of the triangle on digital geoboards. After that, they created lift-the-flap books to highlight characteristics of the polygons they chose. 

The students ate lunch together and everyone had a blast. Ms. Jackson and Mr. Wall are hoping to team up with the young scholars again before the end of the school year.
