4th Grade Discovers NC People and Events
Mrs. Lingerfeltâ€™s class has been hard at work discovering major events, and people that have impacted as well as shaped what North Carolina is today. Students worked to create fliers, posters and newspapers to show what they felt were the top three impacts felt upon North Carolina. Those ranged from the Civil War, World War 1, The Great Depression, World War II, Suffrage for Women, Child Labor Laws, and the Civil Rights Movements which include Martin Luther King, as well as the Greensboro Sit-In. Students were able to truly see how differently our lives would be in North Carolina had those impacts not occurred.
