Did you enjoy this project? The students were very engaged and worked hard. They were responsible from the beginning to the end with minimal teacher support.

About: This was a project done during recess by six 5th graders. They decided for the theme “women’s rights” and came up with the graffiti theme. Three women were chosen to represent the theme: Rosa Parks, Susan B. Anthony and Malala. This project was solely student driven. A brick wall was painted and words in graffiti style were added, than close were chosen for each women and a quote of each woman was written. Faces were painted. At the end everything was put together.
