RVC students were shining bright in latest class Expos. Each class chose ways to share everything they've learned in their last Inquiry Arc, and the results were amazing.
The 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms were investigating the history of Fairfax and focusing on the development of the town over the past 150 years. Many fascinating stories about Fairfax were discovered and shared with peers and parents. For instance, Fairfax has always been a place for picnics and parties. People started taking the train to Fairfax in the late 1800s to escape the cold and fog in San Francisco and have been coming to sunny Fairfax ever since!
The 4th and 5th grade classrooms created historical portraiture and opinion essays on important figures in US history. They started by learning historical themes in US history and each group picked areas to dig into to find the historical figure to represent. The living portraits were created with supporting information narrated by the group. Visual presentations were also created to help students share their learnings with their peers. Congratulations students!
