    Classroom Spotlight
    This is where we will spotlight some of the amazing things happening in the classrooms at Menlo Park School. This Classroom Spotlight shines on:

      the students in Mrs. Meirama’s class were split into 5 groups and each group had the job of reading and presenting about the Lenape.  They needed to teach the class about their section (such as the land bridge, early people,nomads, cultures, customs, etc) in a creative way and develop a way to assess their peers based on their presentations.  There were a few PowerPoint presentations, a poster with an oral story presentation, another poster with very detailed pictures and captions, and a skit with creative and awesome props!  Most groups made up quizzes on Word to give to the other groups.They had lots of fun working, presenting, watching the others and of course, learning all about the Lenape. 

    Check back soon for more Classroom Spotlights!
