6th Grade Cultural Fair


The 6th grade of Garfield School is having a culture fair in PBL. This culture fair is being implemented as a means of exposing our students to a variety of cultures they may have never thought about in the past. The mission of this fair is to highlight key aspects of countries from around the world. Our students have researched their assigned country and have created a tri-fold poster to display their research. Additionally, they have prepared either a t-shirt, song, or dance that accurately demonstrates the cultures and traditions from their countries. This PBL project is cross-curricular and has students working in pairs. Our hope for the end result of this project is a greater understanding and appreciation for different cultures across the globe as well as this being an opportunity for the 6th grade to share their knowledge with the younger grades.
