Ashley Rapp, a fifth-grade teacher at Rolla Middle School, of Rolla 31 School District, wrote a grant entitled "Bringing History to Life with Hands-on Activities". After a unit on Westward Expansion, students will then follow a recipe for crispy rice treats, which will subsequently help them create a sod house. RMS fifth graders will then mimic building the Transcontinental Railroad, using toothpicks and marshmallows. Students will collaborate in planning their projects and deepen their history knowledge by completing the hands-on activities. A panel of retired teachers from across the region selected this grant as one of the nine recipients out of many applications for a $500 classroom grant from Region 7 MRTA. This is Ashley's second consecutive winning grant
