6th Graders Write Migration Stories

Our 6th graders have been doing research on life in Afghanistan and Guatemala, then turning that research into migration stories of individuals or families migrating from there. Working in groups, they researched, created migrating 'characters' and turned their stories into short plays about the struggles their characters faced both at home and in a new country. They put the finishing touches on this week and shared their plays with the 5th grade as part of the most recent Mosaic Day.
