Chip Pollock, eighth-grade Social Studies teacher at Hobbton Middle School, assigned the “Counties of N.C.” project to his classes in an effort to further comprehension about the state in which they live. Students were required to contact their chosen county’s Chamber of Commerce to request information that was later used for research. Before presenting to their classmates, each student was required to write a report, make a display and PowerPoint, create a pamphlet for tourists and design a county flag. Students pictured, from left, are: Aaron Beasley, Jose Martinez, Aneesha Dunn, Ty Meyer, Jonathan Wright, DeLaney Thornton, Eddie Whitted, Jennyfer Santos, and Beth King.
