Sixth grade students in Bryton Saunders’ class at Lynbrook North Middle School transformed their school hallway into a Black History Month museum. The students researched and created posters about significant Black figures from throughout history, ranging from Louis Armstrong and Muhammad Ali.
They displayed their posters in the hallway and also created a Wall of Quotes which featured famous quotes from Black Americans. While wearing special tour guide T-shirts, the students shared their knowledge with social studies classes who visited the museum with clipboards in hand. As museum tour guides, the students did a great job communicating and presenting on these important individuals and classes gained a better understanding of history from their creative and informative museum.
