Fourth-graders tackle 'An Inconvenient Truth'

SALISBURY — A group of fourth-graders in Helen Mahoney’s Language Arts Enrichment class spent six weeks reading the first few chapters of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” with two weeks devoted to creating and installing a multimedia exhibit at Salisbury Central School.

The exhibits — models, graphs, charts and video clips — are based on Gore’s book. Mahoney said she helped the students with the concepts. “Some of it was a little advanced for the fourth grade,” she said.

Then the children took two weeks to come up with ideas and to create the exhibit.

The students created the models and learned other skills, such as Excel (for the graphs) and how to find and use images from search engines.
