In PJ this week are doing the Medieval person and event our teacher gave us. We had to research the person and learn their life, fiction or not. Our event was very important also. For our event we could have gotten a battle or an art piece. Most of our class, however didn’t finish our homework. So we had to go to the library and computer lab to do more reseach and gather the homework they were already supposed to have done. This week has been a very interesting to find out more about an important person in the middle ages.
Hi my name is Shavon. Since sixth grade has started, in Project Jubilee, we’ve been learning about optical illusions and how its just your eyes that make you think that you’ve seen somthing odd. We have also been learning about jazz music and musicians. For homework we have to research a famous musician. I got Nina Simon. This project is really fun and I really look forward to doing more !
We have been learning about the jazz age and the people that really made a difference and we have been doing some art projects that have to do with illusions and it has been very artistic. Soon we will do the Dale Chihuly project which is going to be very cool and creative.
Today we are going to start are jazz research I have to research Art Tatum.
I like optical illusions I am almost finished with my hand.
Oh my name is Joey.
Last Monday, We went to the BEM and we learned about some of the things that went on there, also we learned about some of the names of people that went there. Some who live in our modern day Daphne! Did you know that our Surgeon General of the USA went to that school? It was the main building along with some other buildings, that were on our school grounds now but got moved when our school came to be. One of the tour guides said that her school building that she learned in was going to be torn down. She was devastated until she saw our school now. She said,” I regret ever trying to save that building, what you all have now does not only have a better learning quality, but also is way prettier”. I was very excited to learn about what I have written and also more. Well I’ve had a tremendous day but I’ll have to blog you later, bye!
Last Friday, my half of the 6th grade Project Jubilee went on an on campus field trip to the Black Education Museum. It was a very cool place to go to learn about the past. Our tour guide, Mrs. Agee, remembers back when she was in fourth grade going to the exact same school!!! In the first room, the lobby, that we went in there were pictures of all of the past schools that had been on the campus. Seven in all but Mrs. Agee remembered 6 of them, dating back to around the 40’s and 50’s. Later we went intoa very cool room full of old agricultural tools used in gardening and working the fields a long time ago. Many of the things looked similar to today’s tools, such as the saw, gardening hoe, hand shovel, hammer, scizzors, and lawnmower. My favorite room though, had the names of everyone who had ever attended the school. Some people I recognized but just about everone else I didn’t. Overall, I thought the trip was very cool and I learned many interesting facts about the old school and also about black education many years ago.
Last Friday, My Project Jubilee class took a trip to the Black Ed. Museum righ toutside our school. It was very exicting and I learned many new things.
The first thing I did when I got in was introduce myself to Mrs. Agee, our guide for thc day. She showed us the wall showing all of the past schools that have been on the grounds. Here they are:
Eastern Shore Missonary Baptist Academy 1889-1915
Eastern Shore Industrial School 1915-1927
Dapne Junior High 1970-1989
Daphne Middle 1989-1993
Daphne Int. 1993-2004
Daphne South 2004-2007
I saw many recovered items like old football schedules and such. In the hallway, I saw many plauques containing past students names. In the next room I saw old tools used during the time of Baldwin County Training School. I also saw a Dormatory room and Pictures of some past inhabitants of it.
Next, I went into the sports room. I saw old tennis rackets, Track and Field records, Pictures of past P.E. sessions, and pictures of the basketball team.
Next, I saw the music room. There was a trombone, a drum, and the B.C.T.S song on the wall.
Then I saw the Home Ec. room. THere was a washboard, toaster, Potato storage box labeled “taters”, and old preserved peaches and mushrooms.
Lastly, I saw the Principle’s Office. There were many certificates that Walker J. Carroll Earned. I saw his and his wife’s Graduation gown.
I enjoyed being at the B.E.M.
