The time for the World’s Fair finally arrived. After all our hard work on our Animotos, animal interviews, habitat displays, reports, and everything they did for Miss Girard and the social studies portion, the day had finally come for us to share it with the rest of the school and community.

Once we were set up, all students had their own table to display all of their work. Our cafeteria had a pathway of tables for people to make their way through. At the end, up on the stage, we had a movie theater showing all of our videos that we had created as part of our project. During the school day, classes came through two at a time to ask questions and hear all about each student’s country and animal. At night, parents and other members of the community came in to visit to see all of our efforts at completion.

Take a look at the pictures below to see some of the students either preparing for the day or answering questions about their country and animal!

We wanted to share our entire day with you but we knew there was no way we’d be able to do that. So, instead, we created a time lapse video of our nighttime event. Our document camera took pictures every 3 seconds over the course of an hour and a half. Once put together into a video, our hour and half nighttime event can now be viewed in just over 3 minutes!

If you could choose any country to study, what would it be?
