Ever since Digital Learning Day in February, CHE 5th Graders have been working on a racial injustice project.  They researched different racial groups in the US--Native Americans, African Americans, Latin Americans, and Asian Americans--and made commercials against the acts of racial injustice faced by their group.  The project reinforced several parts of the 5th Grade English/language arts, social studies, and media/technology curriculum, as students had to summarize articles in Google Docs, collaborate to create a commercial script, and select pictures and music according to fair use rules.  Here are three of our best commercials, which we showed at our March Terrific Kids assembly.
