Wilmington High School’s U.S. History Fair Set For April 9, Open To Public At 6:30pm

WILMINGTON, MA — On Tuesday, April 9, 2019, Wilmington High School will hold its annual 10th Grade U.S. History Fair. All students taking U.S. History have been working on a three-part differentiation instruction project since January.

In the first step of the project, students learned about the reliability of using Internet sources for historical research. They completed historical research reflection and narrowed down a list of valid sources to create an annotated bibliography.

After completing their research, students demonstrated their newfound knowledge in a final project (i.e. constructed project, short film, piece of literature, or a student suggested product approved by the teacher). Each 9th grade U.S. History class chose two projects to be showcased at the history fair.

Prizes will be awarded in the following categories: 1st place (overall), 2nd place (overall), 3rd place (overall), Best Use of Primary Sources, Most Original, Most Knowledgeable Presenter, and Student Favorite.

There are two portions of the fair. Judging and student viewing will take place in the library during W2 (10:30am to 12:30pm). At 6:30pm, there will also be an evening reception for parents and the community in our library at which time awards will be presented.
