Wacona Elementary students in Mrs. Pearson’s first grade class have been learning about historical figures this nine weeks. Students completed a project on one of their favorite historical figures in which they had the option to complete a poster board and/or dress as the historical figure. They presented their projects to the class. Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Sacajawea made an appearance, along with excellent poster board reports on Ruby Bridges, among others. The students loved completing these projects and learning more about the contributions these historical figures made to the United States. Mr. John Chancey is the principal of Wacona Elementary.
