New Zealand Pavlova, eclairs, kiwi, and Lusikkaleivat (Finland spoon cookies) were among the many foods sampled at a local cultural celebration. From tamales and churros to kringla and stroopwafle Dutch cookies, Mrs. Craig’s 6th grade class had a plethora of treats for sampling at their annual Geography Fair.  Over forty countries were represented by an enthusiastic group of students excited to share the customs and cultures of their selected country.  The students spent five weeks researching and preparing their projects.  Included in their research was information on the history, government, culture, currency and climate of their region.  The students each created a Keynote presentation for their country, wrote an informative speech, created a visual display of their findings and presented the information to their peers.  The Geography Fair served as the unit’s culminating activity.  Each student was given a passport to fill out as he/she visited several countries of his/her choice.  The Geography Fair provided the students with an opportunity to not only share what they learned but to also explore other countries while learning from their fellow classmates.  There was an outpour of support from parents and community members visiting the Geography Fair.  The sixth grade teaching team is proud of the students’ dedication to this project and the academic progress made.  It was a great day at SGS with fun had by all!
