BLACK HISTORY MONTH CELEBRATIONS INSPIRE SIXTH GRADE CLASS


In celebration of Black History Month, sixth-grade students in Mrs. Lockett’s ELA class chose inspiring figures to research and learn about throughout February. They shared their newfound knowledge with the class in the form of biography wheels and Google slide presentations, full of facts and images.

 

Some students took the project a step further and crafted a representation of their chosen figure using a soda bottle and art supplies. Kayla Corn choose Jackie Robinson: "I thought Jackie Robinson was an important person because he changed the game of baseball for people of color, and I also really like to play baseball.” Tianna Amendola who loves gymnastics and the Olympic games, chose Gabby Douglas. She was inspired by Gabby's passion for gymnastics, her goals and setbacks, and her determination to never give up. 

 

The students showed great interest in learning from individuals who have effected positive change in American society and culture, and they took pride in honoring them with their projects.
