History Fair 2021-2022

On March 10, seventh grade students concluded their work on 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 from their life. Circle of Influence pages highlighted the role that key individuals played in their life; a childhood story page included descriptive writing with fun anecdotes from their early life; journal pages were written in first person describing an obstacle or challenge faced; a timeline with significant events; a Newspaper Style Article detailed a significant achievement or accomplishment; Life and Legacy pages surveyed their life in words and pictures; Biblical integration page highlighted a Bible verse and a character trait.

Students learned how to tackle databases accessed through the Harris County Public Library, to incorporate in-text citations, to paraphrase texts, to skim sources and to weave quotes into their papers.

All who came to see this event were impressed by students’ hard work and final presentations. Congratulations to the Texas History Fair winners of 2021-22 and to all who participated. We are proud of your perseverance and diligence throughout this journey!
