  • Black History Month Project Enlightens Students

    Two fourth grade classes at Chestnutwold recently explored a website called PebbleGo to learn about famous African Americans. Teachers Mary Lou Meehan and Jen Strawley allowed each pair of students to pick a slip of paper with such names as W. E. B. DuBois, Louis Armstrong, and Ruby Bridges. The lesson focused on reading nonfiction text and summarizing on a paper with a hexagonal organizer, reporting the facts given in their own words. The finished products are proudly displayed in the hallway.
