Propel Homestead’s 3rd grade English/Language Arts class immersed themselves (almost literally!) in a biography/history project!
These third grade students spent the first 7 weeks of school learning about how the United States is both similar to and different from other countries. Further, they went on to research how people and events influenced the growth our country.
During the last 3 weeks of the project, students researched famous Americans throughout history. Their assignment? To write a biography about the famous American and to give a speech about him/her.
Students then had the pleasure of presenting those speeches to Mr. Hammond’s 7th and 8th grade classes as the culminating activity for the module! Instructor Jasmine Anderson is proud of the perseverance that the students showed. “Third grade did a wonderful job of putting all of the elements together for a wonderful project!”
The students also had an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding by presenting their speeches as part of a “Wax Museum” during a parent/school meeting as well!
