Smith Jr. High eighth grade United States ^ history class has taken an ? entertaining approach to studying. Last week Mrs. Zettie Williams' history class pulled on costumes and students taught each other from their roles as new world discoverers. The students were each assigned individuals who came to America as explorers and Williams said the assign ^ ment involved independent research, a poster and a presentation in costume to their classmates. Along with information on the explorer, students were assigned the specific task of gathering data about what the dis coverers thought the new world looked like and items they brought with them to America. "The project built a great deal of enthusiasm among the students." E.E. Smith Jr. High teacher Zettie Williams said. "And. I think the project has helped make the students more know ledgable of the settlement of North Carolina." As the students worked on their individual projects, informa tion was gathered from a variety of sources such as the Duplin County Dorothy Wightman Library or re source people within the community, Williams said. "The preparation and pre sentation of the individual projects was used to give the students a break from hear ing history taught from their textbooks," she added. Some of the characters portrayed by the class in cluded Columbus, Pocahon tas, Sir Francis Drake, Ver ranzano, Captain John Smith, Queen Elizabeth, Juan Ponce de Leon. Sir Humphrey Gilbert. Sir Walter Raleigh. John Cabot, Roanoke Island, the lost colony, and Lucas De Ay Hon. i?pi in.? ? 'mm - . m HISTOHY COMES TO LIFE AJ ?~E. SMITH .TheJJ.S.
