4th Graders Replicate Independence Hall

Our 4th graders from West and Central replicated the Continental Congress and Independence Hall in the classroom this month. The students got the chance to work on their public speaking and debate skills. They were debating over the question: “ Whether the Colonies should declare independence from Great Britain, or remain loyal to the British Empire.” Beyond this, each side and student came prepared with supporting arguments and evidence to counter each other's claims. A great learning experience for all!
