Fourth-graders at Long Beach’s East School presented an interactive and engaging Social Studies Fair on Jan. 30. Classes spent time researching topics and preparing projects related to the American Revolution, and culminated their studies with a collaborative program held in the gymnasium. 

The students’ and teachers’ efforts resulted in an afternoon of entertainment for parents and other guests. Attendees enjoyed portrayals of a timeline of the American Revolution, a living museum of historical figures and a play about the Boston Tea Party. Various displays about all aspects of life during this important era were showcased, and students took on the roles of impactful individuals in history with enthusiasm.

As the event concluded, students read the Declaration of Independence and sang “Proud To Be an American.”
