Second graders at Ursuline Academy are learning about timelines this school year through an inter-disciplinary project in their technology and art classes. The students’ ultimate challenge will be to create a timeline of Ursuline history, with milestones including St. Ursula’s birth in the Third Century and the founding of the Ursuline Sisters’ all-girls’ New Orleans school in 1727. As part of their research, the second graders toured the Old Ursuline Convent. They also visited St. Louis Cathedral and Cafe du Monde.
