Portraits of History

Eighth graders research the Post-Revolution to Pre-Civil War era by investigating the life and contributions of a notable person. They create silhouettes which are framed with timeline. Also, they add the research information to the display which is part of a gallery walk. They collect information about the era by visiting the artwork presented by other students.
