A project in the AP World History and AP U.S History classes that has become more of a school tradition are finished. The peeps projects are now finished and have already been up inside the atrium.

“The scope and pace of AP World History means we don’t get to go in-depth and explore the importance of individual events or people,” World History teacher Mrs. JP said. “This is a fun way for students to explore an event, individual or time period that interests them.”

The project requires that sophomores in the AP World History and juniors in the AP U.S History classes create dioramas to represent a specific event in US and world history. However, the people are the Easter candy, Peeps. They get a list to choose from all time periods from the building of the pyramids of Giza to the French Revolution to the Battle of Normandy.

This is a fun way for students to explore an event, individual or time period that interests them.”

“It’s really fun because you get to use your imagination,” sophomore Rachael Hayward said. “You get to work with tiny little marshmallows. I did Christopher Columbus discovers the new world and I chose it because I got to build a big boat for my project.”

The students are just coming off taking their AP tests two weeks ago and are finishing up their class with this project.

“Overall the class was good,” junior Frances Venditte said. “It was challenging but not too bad. I really enjoyed the class.”
