3rd grade puts on living museum exhibition

The Class of 2033 culminated history lessons by presenting some of America's greatest figures to their families in the Gordon Multipurpose Room.
By Ian Dinkins, Assistant Director of Marketing and Communications 

The Gordon Multipurpose Room was transformed into a living museum when third graders gave presentations on figures from American history. Some of the figures represented included Isaac Newton, Diane Nash, and Jackie Robinson. Each student dressed up as a different figure, and they shared about the lives and accomplishments of some of the country's icons. 

Anisha Shimpi '33 decided to present on Nashville icon Diane Nash.

"She sounded like an interesting woman and I wanted to study an activist," said Anisha.

They were able to share what they learned with parents and peers alike, as the USN community flocked to the museum to hear from the students. The new format, which allowed each student to present once to the entire room, was also a big hit. 

"In the past, it's been hard for parents to hear because each student went at the same time," said Third Grade Teacher Sarah Wiley. "This new format gives each student a chance to present to everyone and saves them from having to give the presentation dozens of times."
