LES Black History Museum
Posted Tuesday, March 4, 2014
At Loveland Elementary School (LES), Ms. Armstrong and Mrs. Rack's third-grade students turned research about famous African-Americans into a way to educate others. The annual Black History Museum was a collection of creative projects with informed presenters.
“It is my hope that students take away new knowledge and the understanding that people are usually more alike than different and that our country has many contributors to its history that many people may not know about,” said LaVerne Armstrong, LES teacher. “In addition, I always hope that they come to understand that researching a topic, person or idea can lead them to higher learning, that those who were extremely shy found that they were able to speak to many people about what they knew and that they all could feel a sense of accomplishment and pride in the work that they completed and were able to share/teach with others.”
