Emerson’s Michigan Museum

“If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you” is Michigan’s state motto.  Emerson 4th and 5th graders might add, “It’s an INTERESTING peninsula too!”

Students in Marchell Burgess’ and Sue Addy’s classes recently transformed their classrooms and adjoining hallway into the “Michigan Museum.”  They researched and created displays on topics such as native plants and trees, fun facts, Lake Huron questions and answers, and endangered species.  Opening their doors to the Emerson community, they invited everyone to look about and learn about our great state.
