Seventh Graders in Mr. Kersey's History Class Engage in Immigration-Themed Activity
Seventh graders in Mr. Kersey’s history class engaged in an immigration-themed activity - they wrote their countries of origin on a whiteboard to create a visual representation of their class’s diversity.
"This is one of the great things about living in this city," said Mr. Kersey. "In other parts of this country you don’t see nearly the breadth of countries seen on this board."
Following the activity, the class discussed the history of immigration in the United States, stretching back farther than the pilgrims to the settlement of St. Augustine, Florida by Spanish explorers in 1565.
