6th & 7th Grade Demonstrations of Learning at Both PFFS Campuses

Sixth and seventh graders at both Paulo Freire middle schools presented powerful end-of-quarter demonstrations of learning on Tuesday (9/27/16).

At PFFS-University, it was the Hohokam Living Museum.  The event was open-house style and 6th/7th graders presented their learning about Hohokam shelters, storytelling, art, and relationship with the environment. Within these interdisciplinary presentations students shared what they had learned about Hohokam engineering, structures, farming practices, art, myths and interactions with the natural environment.
