Fortis Academy Turned Into Living History Museum

Jean Hiller, a fourth-grade social studies teacher at Fortis Academy, transformed the school gym into a living history museum in November.

The event enhanced students' understanding of the Constitution and structure of our government as each fourth-grader was assigned a founding father or Constitutional Amendment to research with their families. Each student created a poster and dressed the part to transport the parent volunteers and visiting classes back in time to the Constitutional Convention.
