Nov. 15 2016

The fifth grade students at the George L. Cooke Elementary School are reading the novel, Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz, as an extension of their human rights module. The story takes place in Mexico during the 1920s and eventually, the United States. As a part of the unit, they made replicas of yarn dolls depicted in the novel during English class and drew roses in art class to depict the struggles and celebrations of the main character.
