You will be participating in a living history museum project by recreating yourself alongside famous African American inventors and their inventions! This activity requires you to identify significant contributions of African American artists, engineers, inventors, and scientists. You will get to choose the person to portray, but you must get teacher approval before proceeding with the project. In selecting a person, you should try to find someone of historical significance; someone who has been successful in their goals, dreams, and inventions. The “living museum project” is a collection of visual 3D displays using the AR platform from 3DBear. Students can recreate famous moments in Black History Month by visualizing creative thinking in the person's life and accomplishments and incorporating themselves into the assignment. Students will have the opportunity to incorporate themselves into the assignment. Cultural learning greatly contributes to the understanding of children’s place in the world.

Objective: Students can recreate famous moments in Black History Month by visualizing creative thinking in the person's life and accomplishments and incorporating themselves with the 3DBear App.

This lesson is outstanding. This is an outstanding way for students to know about their history rather than just learning through reading a book.
