Also, the students explored new developments happening around East Nashville and also enjoyed East Nashville’s major green space, Shelby Park. They discussed questions such as, “How do you feel about tearing down buildings to build new ones? Would it be a good idea to build on all the land in East Nashville? Should we keep the parks? How do you think things will change in the future?” Third grade student Calvin Milton served as our newspaper photographer on our field trip.
Fourth grade students also interviewed Guest Reader Nathan Weinberg, an East Nashville Real Estate Agent and Developer, and are working on an article about the changing face of East Nashville.
Students enjoyed created ‘bunting’ and journals with guest art teachers from Turnip Green Creative Reuse.
