The third-grade musicians at Far Hills Country Day School have been learning about three NJ musicians as a part of their Adventure America unit. Using a Mind, Brain, Education (MBE) technique of retrieval practice, the students created a thinking map to recall information that they learned about each musician. We then compiled that information and turned it into a book. We hope that you enjoy this book!
