Kids 2008 Henson Art & Literature
Teacher April Russo of Washington, DC

Flag Sculpture | Biographies by: Alexis | Alfaro | Ana | Ebonee | Matthew | Michelle | Reginald | Ricco | Smith

Drawings by: Jonathan | Cristian | Tamara
Our third grade class poses with the sculpture of Matthew Henson we made.

Our class studied Henson extensively during Black History Month. The art teacher Ms. Lola Bloom helped us put the sculpture together.

All the students had a part in the project. Many drew pictures of Henson, wrote biographies about him, or explained why he is an important figure.

Holding the flag from right to left are:
Ana Alfaro, Michelle Macario, Ebonee Muschette and Alexis Everett.

In the back, from right to left are Terance Johnson, Marcus Callaham, Cristian Olivo, Aaron Sanders, and Jonathan Smith.

Foreground: Ricco Thomas and Mathew Keys

Reginald Rice, Stephen Herring, and Tamara Clark are not pictured, but all three also worked on the project.
