Change Maker Research

April 26, 2023 | Rebekah Lowe

Second and third graders have been doing lots of research!  Starting from their spring break, students have been reading and finding information about their chosen change maker.  They have been sharing lots of facts and cool stories about their person.

During spring break, students read a book about their change maker and placed post-it notes in it to mark certain pieces of information (Thank you, parents, for your help in this!!)

Last week, each student worked with an 8th grade student to do some deeper research and get help with answering questions about their change maker.  They have been enjoying this time together with them.  It’s been a joy to see them collaborate and talk with each other.  Both parties get to learn something new and are building connections.


Students are now beginning to put their projects together.  They had the option of choosing a tri-fold poster, brochure, or booklet.  They are placing post-its with the information onto the poster to lay out the design.  Next, they will write it down, edit, make final touches (flair pen and coloring).

In the coming days, after their project is finished, students will practice how to present their information for the museum, happening on Tuesday, May 9th.

We can’t wait to show you the results of our study!

Teacher, Grades 2&3

Rebekah Lowe knew that she wanted to be a teacher ever since middle school when she was inspired by an English teacher who developed interactive games and creative acronyms for many of the topics that were discussed. Because of her teachers, Ms. Lowe attended the education program at the College of New Jersey, where she experienced a variety of classroom environments, and earned a teaching degree. She was also a part of the Education Honor Society. After graduating, Ms. Lowe taught English in South Korea, and during this time, she was able to travel around Asia and experience new cuisines and cultures. Her love of travelling increased, and she hopes to travel more in the future! She began her teaching career in the United States at Mustard Seed School in 2018 as a second and third grade teacher in the Meadows class. She’s excited to be a part of the school community and share her many experiences with her students.
