Long Beach Middle School seventh-graders are again participating in the annual National History Day contests after success in past years. The students extensively researched historical figures and events of their choice and presented key facts and findings in various forms on Jan. 16. 

The entire grade showcased work based on this year’s theme of “Breaking Barriers.” Over the course of several months, students explored their topics and created projects ranging from display boards to documentaries, from websites to stage performances. All incorporated supporting thesis statements. 

As another component of history day, students wrote process papers and developed annotated bibliographies. Select projects from each category will now advance to the regional Long Island History Day competition, to be held at Hofstra University in March.
