Third graders recently presented Williamsburg: A Revolutionary City to their parents and their first grade buddies. As the very first student performers in the newly renovated Dunn Performing Arts Center, the third graders presented a story about the days leading up to the American Revolution.
This performance culminated an interdisciplinary unit on Colonial America in which students read biographies of people of the time, wrote about trades people and their crafts, and discussed what led to the conflict between the colonies and England.
"We are so proud of our students. They worked hard at immersing themselves in the study of Colonial America and the smiles on their faces during the performance illustrated how much they enjoyed this study," commented Joanne Aventuro, Grade 3 Faculty.
