Here's the final product:
The kids were really moved by this project, and I was invited by several students to come and see what they had done. Looking at their creations, I was amazed by the sheer amount of time and dedication that must have gone into creating each section of the display. It was clear that this was more than just an assignment to them.
I also couldn't help but notice all of the math that was present in the display.
I'm wondering how I could take this hallway museum idea and turn it into an algebra project. Hmm...
