Students share their research on world explorers
By Elizabeth Sias
Fifth graders at Cambridge Intermediate School had the opportunity to share their studies on explorers in history Friday, Jan. 20.
Students showed parents and guardians their projects and sampled various foods America didn’t have before the Age of Discovery during the Explore Display in the auditorium from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.
“They were extremely excited. All the work is worth it when they’re happy. It’s nice when you have the opportunity for the families to come in and see what we’re working on,” fifth grade teacher Katelyn Ritchart said. “When you turn it into a project, they get excited about what has happened in history before their time, so it’s fun to see them enthused about history when a lot of times students shy away from it.”
