Third-graders Share Living History
What makes Cincinnati and its many landmarks special? Third-graders in Kim Walden and Rebecca Harnage’s classes put the city’s local treasures on display when they presented their Living History Museum projects in late April. “As part of our study of Cincinnati history, third-graders were asked to find something home-grown Cincinnati that they would like to research,” Walden said. “The students then wrote a one to two page report and created a display board about their topic, which they shared with their class.” Third-graders researched a range of topics, including Skyline Chili, the Bengals, and the Cincinnati Zoo. After presenting to their classmates, they set up a gallery. “We ask families and friends to please come visit and learn about Cincinnati history from our student experts,” Walden said.
