Making history at Gillette Road Middle School
|For the first time, students at Gillette Road Middle School took part in a History Fair. They were tasked with showcasing any historical event, time period, person, or place.
On Thursday, April 27 more than 80 students from all three grade levels filled the cafeteria ready to show off their projects. They wore costumes, created display boards, built dioramas, and showed off interactive displays.
A wide variety of topics were covered ranging from the Titanic to Women’s Rights. A few students even made connections to their family history. For example, a Bosnian student researched and shared information about the Srebrenica Genocide.
|The fair was a success thanks to a group of social studies teachers who formed a committee to organize it. They hope to continue and possibly even expand the event in the future.
Great job to all who participated!
