    My 5th graders have taken a deep dive into their hometown history thanks to our grant!

    So far we have used chromebooks to research ancestry classroom ( I highly recommend if you are doing a project of this nature, to view census data, population changes & countries of origin for those moving into Jenkins at the height of the first coal boom. We are taking a trip to our local Coal museum this week and have local history experts scheduled to come speak to our class about how things were way back when.

    We are all learning so much and students are showing a renewed sense of pride in their community already.
