Old Donation School students bringing new building to life, learning about sustainability

October 30, 2017

Eighth grade civics students at Old Donation School in Jared Fritzinger's and Matt Rossettini's classes are using the sustainable features and design elements of the new building to bring curriculum to life.

 

By using different colored painter's tape, the students are creating a visual representation of the governments, federal, local, and state, and their inner relationships.

 

Different-colored tape represents different levels of government, and the floor of the foyer is actually a map of Virginia, so the students are able to bring their lesson to a large vision and audience.

 

Former teacher Chris Nixon, who is pictured, recently said, "the students will be surprised by the expanse of government lands areas and the impact on their lives, which are both social and economic."

 

Fritzingerhad his students not only taping out the boundaries and government entities but also researching on the spot with their Chromebooks to get the most up to date and accurate information.
