The fourth graders each read a biography of their choice about a famous African American. As they read, they took notes. After reading the book, each student used his or her notes to write a report. Then, on Friday, February 7, the students presented their information in an “African American History Museum” in the library. Students had objects that honored their person, and they explained why that object was important in the life of their subject. Students in grades K-8 toured the fourth graders’ museum with fourth grade students acting as docents.
