6th graders make friends with Nigerian pen pals
Sixth graders participate in a pen pal project with sixth graders at a school in Nigeria and learn about the lives of their counterparts. Sixth graders also read several historical novels with themes related to racial, socio-economic diversity, including "How I Found the Strong," "Lyddie," and "Roll of Thunder. Hear My Cry."
In Social Studies, topics of study include female inventors and African American women who have made a difference in history.
