This grant funds 10-week simulation where fourth grade students at Duffy Elementary School will inherit a map from an elderly wizard, and will travel to a castle full of gold atop Treasure Mountain by working together in cooperative-learning teams. Students move along the trail by scoring well on spelling tests, displaying good behavior, and participation in activities involving creative writing, identifying parts of speech, and alphabetizing. Through this program, students will improve their spelling by writing poetry and reading aloud in an environment of teamwork and friendly competition.
