Civics Presentations

5th Graders put together short presentations on the civics topics we've studied the past two weeks. We had poems on the Statue of Liberty, skits on taxation and posters on active political participation. Enjoy!

Civics Lessons

We piloted a new citywide Civics program this month. We learned about what it means to be American, thought critically about symbolism in the Great Seal and the Statue of Liberty, discussed the First Amendment, and developed a school budget using tax dollars. Check out some of the photos from our lessons.

Stations!

Fifth graders worked on stations related to the Cherokee and the Trail of Tears, as well as the connection of buffalo to Native Americans during the 1800s. Students analyzed quotes, speeches, diagrams, maps, paintings and photographs to develop a deeper understanding of these time periods.





Brooklyn Museum Trip

Imani led us on a tour of the American Gallery and the Soul of a Nation exhibit.
