On March 8th, seventh-grade students concluded their work on the Texas History Fair with presentations to parents, classmates and a panel of judges. A reception displaying students’ scrapbooks was well-attended by parents and students.
Since early December, students became immersed in the life of their Texan by researching, writing and creating a scrapbook which incorporated several genres of writing. Pages highlighted various aspects of their life. Circle of Influence pages highlighted the role key individuals played in their life; memories pages included descriptive writing with fun anecdotes from their childhood; journal pages were written in first-person describing an obstacle or challenge faced; quote pages highlighted meaningful quotes about or by their Texan; a newspaper-style article detailed a significant achievement or accomplishment; life and legacy pages surveyed their life in words and pictures; Biblical integration pages highlighted a Bible verse and character trait.
All who came to see this event were impressed by students’ hard work and final presentations. We celebrated their achievements with brownies for all! Congratulations to the Texas History Fair winners and to all who participated. We are proud of your perseverance and diligence throughout this journey!
