BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Team 8D at the Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School held its annual Decades of Change Museum May 19 in the library, with topics from the 1960s, including space exploration, pop culture and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Students read one of three books related to the time period, “Brown Girl Dreaming” by Jacqueline Woodson, “Fallen Angels” or “Glory Field,” both by Walter Dean Myers. Then, they selected research topics based on their personal interests.

The classes hosted the 1960s museum with interactive exhibits for all to see.
