2nd graders artwork highlighting famous African- Americans.
Come see the children’s artwork
currently on display in
February 11 – 28.
Jefferson Elementary's Jenny Barnes and WSU's College of Education's Paul Mencke collaborated on a Black History unit focused on leaders such as Mary Bethune, Dr. Carter G. Woodson and Dr. Mae Jemison. The project was inspired by one of Dr. Mencke's current projects, a children's picture book. The alphabet style reader will highlight many African-Americans who have helped to mold the history of our nation. I plan on learning more about the project and will keep you posted!
Here is a sneak peak at some of the students artwork:
