My Students

Imagine putting a lot of work into your very first research project and then lacking the supplies to display your hard work!

My students are bright and smart learners.

There is little parental support and most are students from a low socioeconomic background. Students are unable to afford basic supplies on a regular basis. Teachers are forced to use their own resources to obtain supplies for the students.

My Project

We are requesting Display Boards to use for our Living Museum/History project. Students will learn the research process and research a historical figure. The students will write a research report and then create a display based on their historical figure. Students will then participate in our Living Museum. The students will dress up as their topic and present information to visitors as if they are the person.

This project introduces students to the research process.

It also allows them to learn more about US History. Students are able to gain an appreciation of other cultures and influential people in History. Students are also inspired by those that faced adversity but still reached success. Students also gain a great deal of confidence through presenting information about their historical figure.
