Stereotype Busters

From Mrs. Piknick:


"As a part of the current fourth-grade Project-Based Learning Unit "Celebrating Diversity--Inside and Out," students tried to "BUST" common stereotypes. In order to do so, the children found evidence to disprove common stereotypes of their choosing, and shared their findings with their classmates!"
