5th Grade Historical Tea

OES 5th graders brought history alive this week! 

Students selected a historical or famous figure to research. Then, each student wrote a creative narrative from the perspective of their chosen character.  On Tuesday, students dressed up as their historical figure, presented to their class in character, worked collaboratively in small groups to create a timeline of the major events from the lives of all the historical figures presented, and played Bingo to review the facts about each of the figures.  The event culiminated in the cafeteria, where all the historical figures met for “tea” and to mix and mingle.  It was THE place to be! -cg
