Fifth grade studied the culture and history of the American south in conjunction with reading the novel “Brown Girl Dreaming,” a story about growing up in South Carolina and New York in the 1960s.

Students finished the unit by creating either a video commercial, a brochure, or a T-shirt about one of the states in that region, focusing on the climate, land and water, natural resources, plants and animals, people, and landmarks.

Great job on this video, Maddy!
