We are integrating our inquiry study of America the Great into Literacy. Younger students have identified themselves as stories and created actions to help them remember the elements of storytelling.

The older students have heard stories about Thomas Jefferson, James Madison Hemings, Annie Oakley, and a few Native American chiefs. They took those stories and did a tableau that represented some of the pictures from the stories. Tableau enhances students learning by connecting with the characters and tapping in to the persons personal life.
