Students at Port Clinton Middle School recently completed their history lesson as part of the unit on Colonization to Independence

. In Grade 8 American History students are currently studying  events leading up to the Revolutionary War. As part of the lesson Mr. Kurt Heilmann asked students to design and make dioramas by working in small groups. A diorama is a representation of a scene that is made to appear three-dimensional. Students had their choice of the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party or Lexington and Concord. Students are now completing reports on the events depicted in their diorama to be written in the form of a newspaper article. These reports will be graded in both Writing and American History classes.

Mr. Heilmann has posted the pictures of the projects online. To see the link and the projects created by students, visit www.pccsd.net and find the lesson under “news”.
