Submitted by courtney.corbin on Fri, 01/24/2014 - 15:10

Taylor Elementary's fifth grade students in Mr. Rory Hansen and Mr. Ien Richins' classes recently participated in their annual "History Fair".  Students researched and presented themselves as a person that gave a significant contribution to American History.  The gym was full of characters such as Elvis Presley, Walt Disney, Alexander Graham Bell, Rosa Parks, Amelia Airhart, Neal Armstrong and Babe Ruth.  Fourth grade student Kyler Newton says, "It was really cool to see all the different people.  I can tell it will take a lot of work next year when I am in 5th grade."   Mr. Richins says of the fair, "Students enjoy the 'History Fair' each year because these historical figures become more than just a name in a book. In a way, they get to know them personally."  Thank you Taylor Tigers for teaching our students about our country's important historical figures.
