This past Tuesday Ms. Basta and the student government organized an afternoon of research and celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Our student government leaders designed an activity to have the Middle School students partner with their buddies in the Lower School. They found helpful websites which were posted to the school's Web Resources site. The buddy teams used the provided websites to learn more about Dr. King and other civil rights leaders looking back to early American history.
The students used images and text to construct collages to share their findings. Mrs. Heyder noted that a method was needed to share all the information so that everyone could learn from one another's work. She came up with the idea of laminating each poster to turn them into place mats for the cafeteria tables. The image above is one example.
Our curious students now have even more to talk (and learn) about during lunch.
