H. C. Storm Elementary  
My name is Mary Ann Weidner.  I teach 1st grade at H.C. Storm Elementary School in Batavia, Illinois.  In an effort to enhance our Social Studies curriculum, two topics have been chosen from our list.  First, Lighting the Holidays - which includes vocabulary, games and a quiz about how the different winter holdays utilize light.  This includes a biographical reference to Thomas Edison and his invention of the light bulb.  The second part of this Social Studies page is a hot list of Internet sites that research ecology for young children. This includes recycling, conservation and endangered species.
