Celebrating Historic Individuals

Celebrating Historic Individuals

In honor of Black History Month, seventh-grade students in Grant Connelly’s classes at Rocky Point Middle School helped to blanket the school with information about some of the most influential African-Americans.

As part of a research project, the students chose an individual from throughout American history and spent several class periods in the library learning about them. From their research, they created informative posters highlighting the societal and worldly contributions of their selected person.

The students shared these completed projects, which featured such individuals as Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks and Duke Ellington, with their classmates before displaying the visual information boards around the building for all to enjoy and learn from.
