BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. – Heritage Christian Schools demonstrated a “living museum” on Monday.
5th grade students represented different historical figures from African-American history.
“Our history books cover black history somewhat, like there are figures thrown in here and there as they fit into the U.S. History units. However, there’s no specific focus on African American history, and I just feel like it’s really important,” said Annette Hitt, 5th grade teacher at the school.
The project had been going on for the class since February, and the students did all of the research for their figure on their own.
