Germantown, Tennessee--November 29, 2018--Dogwood’s 4th grade students put on their scrubs
and their thinking caps as they came to school to celebrate Doctor Day. This
celebration gave students an opportunity to learn the standards in a new way.
Student, Brady Thomas said, “My favorite part of Doctor Day was getting to
stick our hands in Jell-O to grab words to make sentences. All the subjects
were connected. Wearing doctor clothes was fun, and we didn’t have to take out
notebooks to learn.” In addition to doctor clothes,
students even had booties, masks, ID badges, and patient files, all graciously
donated by parents.
