Fourth-graders Learn the History of Newspapers

Fourth-graders in Sara Snyder and Melissa Foraker’s classes saw the First Amendment come to life with some help from the Cincinnati Museum Center. “Ms. Karen, from the Museum Center, visited our classroom to teach us about the history of newspapers and printing,” Foraker said. Students learned how ink was made, how laborious it was to print papers, and they even saw a copy of a newspaper published the day after Lincoln was shot. The teachers said it was a great way for students to learn more about the First Amendment and their class novel, “The Landry News.”
