Social Studies Fair (4/24/09)

*Brett with his board on Greece He also helped Jim make baklava (a rich Greek dessert). It tasted great!
*The kids had to pick an occupation and draw the theme into the word Google. Brett picked a veterinarian.

*Katherine's Japanese kite
*Katherine's dioroma of a Japanese room-compete with flip-flops outside, a Japanese scroll that reads, "God is love", and a hand-drawn mural of a cherry blossom tree
*Katherine's Haiku

*The third graders with their costumes made by Mrs. Murphy
*Mark, Mia, Katherine, Raven, Trey, and Victoria having tea
It was a wonderful, Friday evening. The weather was quite pleasant. We parked a block away and walked over to Mount Olive for the Social Studies Fair. The children put a lot of work into their projects. We were happy to have Peter & Felicia, and Ryan come look around. The only thing that I would change is the amount of time that the Fair was open. It was only two hours long, and that is not enough time to adequately see everything. Hopefully they will change that in two years. It's an every-other-year thing.
