By participating in NHD, students become writers, filmmakers, web designers, playwrights, and artists as they create unique contemporary expressions of history,” explains the National History Day website (www.nhd.org).

Students compete in various categories including documentaries, exhibits, historical papers, performances, and websites.  Students listed below placed in the competition and will move on to the state competition held at LaGrange College on Saturday, April 18, 2020.  To see a complete list of winners, click 'Read more' below.

AWitcher2 Main Idea Versus Theme

Mrs. Witcher's sixth-grade students have been practicing the difference between main idea and theme. Students were divided into groups where each set of partners were given task cards and had to read a short story to determine the theme from 4 choices. Students then recorded their answers on an answer document. They continued this activity by moving around the room to more stations until all were complete. Students seemed to enjoy this activity and worked very hard!
