Fourth-Grade Gets a New Perspective on Rights
On Thursday, Aprill 4, 2019, 4th graders from the Syracuse Academy of Science visited the National Women's Rights Museum in Seneca Falls, NY. Students were able to connect their learning from our novel study, The Hope Chest, to historical facts that happened right in our state. We learned about the Declaration of Sentiments and the great lengths women and men went to so that we can vote, dress how we choose, go to college, and choose our careers. The museum offers a variety of exhibits that gave us a new perspective on the rights and privileges we have today. As Elizabeth Cady Stanton said, "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal."
