Lincoln: A Kid's Eye View

Find out what Brownell Elementary fifth graders discovered about Lincoln in the exhibit Lincoln: A Kid's Eye View at the Nebraska History Museum. Brownell Elementary fifth graders visited five of Lincoln's community centers and heard stories from people who immigrated to Lincoln from other countries or grew up as minorities in Lincoln. To share their new vision of their city, the students created Lincoln: A Kid's Eye View.
