Datil His­tory Fair

Catron Courier - - Front Page - by Ricky Chavez

The Datil His­tory Fair took the place of the yearly Sci­ence Fair. The re­quire­ments were that each stu­dent chooses a his­tor­i­cal event or per­son and pre­sented a pre­sen­ta­tion on their topic. They were first asked to choose a topic, and then re­search that event or per­son. Next they were to de­sign a pre­sen­ta­tion board. For grades 3-6, they were also re­quired to write a re­search paper on their sub­ject. Dur­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion, two other re­quire- ments were: they role model or dress up as their sub­ject and they were asked to give an in­tro­duc­tion as to who they are, who/what their topic was about and what grade they were in. Lastly, they were re­quired to give a short 4-5 minute pre­sen­ta­tion on their topic and why they chose that par­tic­u­lar event or per­son. If stu­dents were able to present some type of ar­ti­fact or model from their topic, they then re­ceived more points.

This ac­tiv­ity will be done ev­ery other year in or­der to al­ter­nate with the Sci­ence Fair. It

gave stu­dents a break from the same old rou­tine and they were able to ex­plore a lit­tle His­tory, which stu­dents rarely get to en­joy what with all the re­quire­ments placed on in­struc­tion these days.
