Living History: A Better World Project

4th and 5th grade students from Silverton School, an EL Education school in Silverton, CO, leave their tiny, isolated community and travel across Colorado to learn the history of their state from diverse perspectives. Students create a living history exhibit for their local museum to bring the little known story of their town to the forefront: the violent expulsion of all Chinese immigrants in 1902.
