PS7 Class X01 created and presented their project entitled “The City that Never Sleeps” during the 3rd Annual District 75 Social Studies Fair held at the New York Historical Society. The project was led by the collaboration between Ms. Arminda Crisostomo and Ms. Calianne Botsaris with the help of Ms. Tiffany Bejarano and Ms. Frimy Parola. The students were accompanied by Ms. Mary Ellen Barnes and Ms. Yubis Lopez.
In this project, the students learned how NYC evolved over time by comparing and contrasting images of past and present New York City. They also made dioramas to highlight the differences between NYC Then and Now. Students researched information about the buildings and constructed a time line to show the order in which the buildings were built. They also used circuits to light up the Empire State Building. Students used bubble maps, double bubble maps, flow maps and bridge maps to organize the information they had learned about New York City.
As students made their way to the other schools’ exhibits around the five boroughs of New York City using their passports, they explored and learned different Social Studies topics. It was truly a fun and engaging day filled with knowledge and hands-on learning!
