Service Experience 
Students create a pop-up museum with stories of different African Americans illustrated visually and with facts. A pop-up museum is an informative multimedia illustration of events, people, or things that occurred around a theme or time. The pop-up museum may be shared with others to teach our story of people working for the common good in our shared history.
