The students in Stephanie Callan's class at Bowling Green Elementary School recently learned about symbols of peace as part of a unit on Martin Luther King Jr. They conducted research about symbols of peace, including the history and significance of each.
In recognition of Black History Month, students at W.T. Clarke Middle School researched an African American of their choosing and created a fictional Instagram page for them. They looked up pictures of their selections and researched facts to use as captions.
“The students really got into it,” teacher John Geekie said. “They were able to pick whomever they wanted and were very motivated and interested in doing this project.”
