Jordan, New York
Jordan-Elbridge Jr. Sr. High School
What was 7th grade like is a project that asks students to be historians. They are researching, questioning, interviewing and interpreting the data and artifacts. They should be interviewing someone over 30 years old during this week. The interview should be completed in the next week and half. We will begin the presentation work late next week. They have two essential questions they are working on: What does an historian do and how do they do it? How has life changed since your parents were in middle school?
Get out those year books, report cards and pet rocks. Have fun with this project and help you children understand how the past impacts them. They are very excited about this project. In the end they will digitize your images, stories and "your life" for future generations to view and learn from". Once again, have fun.
Below are a few more images from high school. We looked at these images today and talked about how images are primary resources and tell us about the past. They got a kick out of "Big hair" and dress. What will your year book teach them.
