I am very proud of our students that represented our school at the annual History Fair. It was my first year participating and I got to tag along to the competition. One of my students placed 3rd in the county for her documentary and we had an 8th grade place first in individual exhibit.
The theme this year was Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History! Many of the students focused on various wars throughout history, others, popular topics such as telephones and photography. The students could make a display, perform a play, create a website or documentary, or write a paper.

The students also got to take some time to explore the museum. There were displays on the Civil War in the South that included the various weapons that were used, letters, uniforms, and pictures. There was also a fossil display and Florida native animal displays.
Of course the school news team was there to catch it all and do interviews with the students that competed.
