The 8th Grade students hosted the Living History Museum on Friday, April 10th, 2015 in the Gym.  This project was done under the direction of Mrs. Polinsky, Technology teacher.  Since the fall, the 8th Grade has used Web 2.0 tools to research a specific person in history.  Each 8th Grade created a poster, timeline, and dressed in character as they spoke about the character’s life.  Below is a group picture of the students represented in the Living History Museum:
