February is the time that we focus on the celebration of trials and triumphs of African American History. Although it is important that we, as Americans, do not limit our knowledge and awareness to just one month of the year, this is the time that we bring this part of our history into the limelight (Cardelean, 2011). Students are completely engaged in this high-interest, "living" history museum project. This cross-curricular project incorporates the Georgia Standards of Excellence from social studies, reading, writing, research, and speaking. While covering the required standards for 5th grade, this project allows students be creative, imaginative, and active. Parents and community members are invited to tour the "live" museum, which gives this project a "live" audience component. After research and writing, students will use the display boards, markers, glue and construction paper to make a creative display that showcases their historical figure. On the day of the "living" museum, students will stand in front of their creative display, dressed as their historical figure, and deliver a brief memorized speech to visitors. Large projects, such as this, are often what we remember from our childhood school years. In rural communities, schools and students have limited funding and resources; therefore, limited experiences. However, that should not limit us from bringing hands-on learning into the classroom. Items necessary for the success of this project, funded by YOU, will give every student the opportunity to SHINE on presentation day!
