TUXEDO — George F. Baker High School ninth-graders fused art, world history and writing in Jennifer Jones’ global studies class with the recent creation of family crests.

Students were asked to design a shield or tapestry that may have represented their families during the European Middle Ages.

They chose colors and symbols that would have represented their families.

Creative essays were written, blending facts from the history of the Middle Ages and students’ ideas about their family stories.

Students presented their shields and stories, sharing ideas about battles, marriage, exploration, lost love and victories in battles.

This project represents the blended subject learning opportunities at the school.
