Copiague Middle School held its first Civics Fair on May 11 in the school’s library. The fair showcased the culminating work of students’ Capstone Civics projects developed throughout the year.

Each of the seventh grade social studies teachers selected students to display their projects during the fair. After choosing an issue to explore, students worked in groups to conduct research, interviews and polls. They then presented that research, along with solutions and reflections, to the judges at the fair. Advanced Placement government students from Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School served as judges for the 13 different projects on display.

Students explored civic issues such as pollution, recycling, dress codes, mental health and bullying. The winning team included Dylan Argueta, Kellyn Amador, Yeslyn Canales and Brandon Jessup.

In celebration of Black History Month, English as a New Language students at Copiague Middle School students reviewed the impact of Ruby Bridges and created a timeline of her life in Ms. Hertel’s class. In Mr. Dobbin’s class, students learned about the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman. Students worked in small groups to sort through events in Ms. Tubman’s life and placed them on a tree map timeline. Each group was assigned a specific time in her life and was tasked with finding the events that occurred during that time. At the end of the lesson, the timeline was placed together to make one large tree map that outlined the significant events in Harriet Tubman's life.
