Red River Heritage Fair

 

The grade six students worked diligently on their Heritage Fair Projects in third term. All the hard work paid off because the class had great fun listening to and viewing the entertaining and informative presentations of their fellow classmates. We also invited the grade four and five classrooms, as well as Mrs. Chabluk and Mr. Peters to listen the presentations. The sixes enjoyed answering many questions and listening to comments and feedback. It was a great learning experience for all!

 

The object of Heritage Fair is to bring history to life through the use of skits, historical re-enactments, costumes, dioramas, interviews with experts, games, artifacts, photographs, original artwork, songs, poems, models, backboard displays, timelines, written reports, and dynamic presentations.

 

Although the majority of the projects were well done, unfortunately they could not all be entered into the fair. Only some could be chosen to proceed to the Red River Heritage Fair at the University of Winnipeg on May 4, 2017.

 

The students had an exciting day attending various workshops and presenting their projects to judges. The workshops included: A History Scavenger Hunt (where many students won prizes), Singing, Stories, and Games with the Guitar-Playing History Wrangler, and making Indigenous Spirit Pouches and Beaded Bracelets.  

 

All of our students who entered the fair received medals and certificates, and a couple of students also won Specialty Awards. These students received additional prizes and certificates:

 

CTV Investigative Research Award – Emily Stowe: Woman of Firsts – Adra B.

 

Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame Award – The Winnipeg Falcons – Bradley B.

 

Young Citizen Nomination  Emily Stowe: Woman of FirstsAdra B.

 

Congratulations to all of the students who created and presented excellent projects for this year’s Heritage Fair! You have improved your research, communication, and presentation skills throughout the year. We are proud of you all!
