BUILD THE FUTURE


How did walking CHANGE the world?

Learning exhibit by Bell School students.

A  learning exhibit displays students' learning and educates everyone who sees it!

While this is a hallway exhibit, you can create an exhibit online.

 

That exhibit about the impact of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,

uses a Scholastic article.

You can turn any text into a learning display when students illustrate it.
