Students Curate an Exhibit at Troy’s Historical Society

Students look for clues about Troy’s history

On December 13, 2012 Parker 2-3’s will be mounting and curating a display at the Rensselaer County Historical Society about the development and transformation of rural, suburban and urban communities.  Their study has taken them on a historic scavenger hunt in Troy, a visit to Hancock Shaker Village, and all over the Parker grounds as they analyze census data, maps and historic photos.  The study incorporates language arts, social studies, history, art, and statistical analysis and culminates in an evening event that will be open to parents and the public.
