The LeFrak Class of the Month Essay Contest invited New York City students in grades K-8 to submit essays about their Museum visit to the LeFrak Family Gallery, where they experienced the temporary exhibition Life at the Limits: Stories of Amazing Species.

This non-fiction reading and writing opportunity asked students to think critically about what they learned from their visit to the exhibition, and provided teachers with the opportunity to align a Museum learning experience with Common Core State Standards in ELA for Reading and Writing Informational Texts.

A Class from the following school submitted the winning essays. We received essays from every student in the class. Below is a sampling from the wonderful work of those students.
