Our school has an awesome group of people that work in it and we have all come together to make a Black History Museum. Each classroom picked a famous African American to learn about and then made a display to help teach the rest of the school about their person. The displays are hung out in the front part of our building so everyone can view the wonderful, creative products. My class learned about the brave little girl, Ruby Bridges. We then made a life size Ruby and used tear paper to fill her in. I traced my smallest girl and then cut out parts for the kids to work on. Then we put her back together and you can see what she looks like. She is beautiful, the kids did a fantastic job! We also wrote and interactive piece in Ruby's voice to go along with her on display. We decided together what she would say and then each child got a part to write and then I put it together and made a speech bubble to go along with our piece of art. I hope you enjoy looking at this. As more get hung up I will take pictures and post them.
Here's our finished Ruby, didn't they do a great job?
