Learning Can be Fun: Pictured above are some of the Chicora Elementary 5th-grade students who participated in the Living Museum learning project on May 18th.
On May 18 from 5-6:30 p.m. the Chicora Elementary Fifth Grade performed a Living Museum at the Chicora Elementary Festival of Learning. Students chose a person from history that they wanted to learn more about. They created a costume that was tailored to the likeness of that historical person, as well as wrote a biographical speech to present as if they were that person. Out of all of the museum essays being presented, the oldest person would have been Christopher Columbus (571 years old) and the youngest (still living) was Simone Biles (26 years old). The fifth grade teachers are Kristen Fleeger, LeeAnn Pfeifer, & Emily Schnell.
