Rolling Thunder Presents to Eighth Graders at Chagrin Falls Middle School

The eighth graders at Chagrin Falls Middle School were treated to a presentation from members of Rolling Thunder, a group of Veterans dedicated to helping other veterans and their families. The group presented informational slide shows, shared their stories, and allowed the students to view and handle relics. The presentation is part of the eighth grade interdisciplinary unit entitled, “A Monumental Experience.” The eighth graders were able to answer the question, “Why do we memorialize and honor the people and events that we do?” The presentation allowed the students to use primary sources as a part of the research needed for the upcoming unit. In addition, the students will be creating a proposal for a monument they believe should be created. Each will create a three-dimensional model, a business letter-styled proposal, and a slide presentation to be given in front of a panel of community member judges. The unit will culminate when they visit the nation’s capital. “We thank the members of Rolling Thunder for their past service and their thoughtful presentations that added so much to our student's experience,” said Principal Laila Discenza, Chagrin Falls Middle School.
