The entire fourth-grade of Long Beach’s East School gathered in the building’s gymnasium on Feb. 5, when they portrayed life during the American Revolution for an audience of parents and other guests. Classes spent time researching topics related to the theme, and showcased their discoveries through displays, presentations and performances.

An American Revolution timeline, a living museum of historical figures and a play that reenacted the Boston Tea Party were among the highlights of the Social Studies Fair. Throughout the event, students took on the roles of individuals that made an impact during the featured era and dressed in realistic homemade costumes. They eagerly shared details of their subjects’ contributions and experiences with spectators. 

The afternoon concluded when all students came together in front of the stage and sang “Proud To Be an American.”
