In honor of Black History Month, students in Ms. Stella Crawford’s fourth-grade class did individual research projects on famous African-Americans.  The project culminated in a Living Museum presentation, which allowed students to dress-up and use props to recreate the individual they researched. They invoked an image of the famous people they represented and offered students and visitors a glimpse into the life and history of famous African-American individuals.  As visitors went from student to student, the students offered facts about the individual they researched and visitors were encouraged to “guess” who the famous person was.
