This fall, seventh graders have examined the colonization of the Americas.
Each student has spent weeks carefully researching a particular aspect of European colonization and has pulled the learning together in a research paper and a display. At yesterday’s Mundus Novus showcase, students exhibited the posters and dioramas they had made to shed light on a particular facet of the “new world” exploration and settlement.
To underscore the role that readily available books played in disseminating knowledge during the Age of Exploration, seventh-grader Connor Quigley constructed a working Guttenberg Press. Check out the stop-action video!
