Several third graders presented their Lenape Indian research to their peers. The culminating project was a poster detailing the research collected on the different aspects of the Lenape people's culture.
The children were given instruction on how to organize materials, how to do research using a variety of sources, how to organize and create posters that are visually appealing and reflect information accurately through words and pictures, and how to present information to a group. Public speaking is a skill. The more opportunities children have to present the less anxiety they will have in getting up in front of their peers. Developing literacy skills in children requires them to be able to convey the meaning of a subject from some other source.
