Advanced Placement Spanish and Culture students at Sunrise Mountain High School in Nevada recently built replicas of several historical monuments and buildings in Spain and Mexico as part of a mini museum exhibit. Teacher Beth Leinwand designed the grant-funded project in which students used collaboration, research, language skills and critical-thinking skills as they worked in groups on the models. Leinwand said the principal wants to make the students' displays a permanent exhibit. "I'm really proud of them," Leinwand said.
