During the month of March, the Dell Rapids 5th grade class held a Living History Fair in the Middle School Commons. The students spent several weeks researching information on their selected person from history, wrote a report, put together a poster board of facts, and then brought that person to life by dressing up as their selected person. The students were asked to stand as wax statues until a donation was made to their jar. Friends and family made donations at each students area, and the donation brought the students “to life”.
The 5th grade class raised $790.96 during their Living History Fair. The students then decided on a charity in which to donate the money raised.
