Fourth Grade Walk Through California

Written By: Feng V - May• 31•17

In fourth grade social studies, the students spend the year learning about the history of our great state of California.  Each year, the school puts on an interactive presentation that delineates this progress.  Students are dressed in costumes that symbolize different time periods and aspects of the California history, such as, native Indians, Spanish conquistadors, miners, missionaries, farmers and governors, to name a few.

The presentation engages the students by requiring them to define terms and answer questions to earn points for their teams.  Students are rewarded extra bonus when they “strike gold” and shout out “Eureka!”  Two hours of presentation flew by.  All of our students demonstrated their knowledge in California history and had so much fun while doing so!
