Fifth graders have been studying key events and historical figures from the Revolutionary Era. As a culminating project, the boys researched an important person from the American Revolution and presented their findings to fourth graders.
“The Voices of the Revolution ”presentations focused on the ideas that these people generated or embraced, and the legacy they left behind. Each cohort began and concluded their presentation with a creative Hamilton-style group rap and each boy was responsible for delivering a rap to introduce one of his classmates' presentations. In this project, research, creativity, and performance combined to provide a deeper learning experience.
