As this month is Black History Month, our 5th and 6th Grade classes have been and will continue learning about a variety of Black and African American people who made big changes in our society. Many are pioneers in their fields and are considered to be heroes, as they each have had a hand in helping shape our American culture and ultimately made our world a better place. This week, our class is completing their free verse and Haiku poems based on the research they have been conducting on their focused hero. Friends have also begun sketches for the visual arts component of the project.
