[metaslider id=56971]History was brought to life at Our Lady of Fatima School in Wilton when sixth, seventh and eighth graders displayed their work in a multi-sensory Living Museum exhibit on Tuesday, Nov. 10. The exhibit was the culmination of the school\u2019s new middle school project, which melds English and language arts with social studies. \u201cThis project and event provide the children with an opportunity to experience a \u2018day in the life\u2019 of an historical figure and allow each student to become immersed in their respective time period of study,\u201d said social studies teacher Caitlin Schneider. For the project, students selected historical individuals from assigned time periods and brought them to life. Sixth graders selected individuals from Egyptian history, seventh graders selected historical figures from early American history, and eighth graders selected individuals from the Civil War period. At the Living Museum, students delivered speeches, wore costumes and prepared presentation posters with facts, photos and timelines related to the lives of their selected figures. \u201cFrom an English\/ELA perspective,\u201d said English\/ELA teacher Danielle Mancuso, \u201cthe project requires the students to work with multiple sources, prepare MLA cited work and deliver an oral presentation one-on-one to attendees.\u201d Visitors of the exhibit got the chance to view the presentations and talk with the students to learn about the historical figures.
