Sara Harp Minter students study early exploration of the Americas

Fourth grade students at Sara Harp Minter Elementary have been studying Early Exploration of the Americas. Their studies culminated by choosing a minimum of 3 detailed projects on Early Exploration. Projects reflected their understanding of challenges and problems solved by early explorers who had limited technology to guide them. Students created New World Menus, Papier-mâché globes showing routes taken by explorers, built ships reflective of the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria, and showed their artistic abilities by drawing monsters, giant creatures, and mermaids in the ocean. From left to right are Connor Ferguson, Maggie Gaston, Kate Flanagan and Burt Young of Mrs. Falzone's fourth grade class.
