Summit School Students Give Presentation on Arizona History

Fourth-graders at Summit School in Ahwatukee are now a lot more in touch with the great history of Arizona, following their “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow” presentation last week.

According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, more than 30 students presented all the history they learned about the great state during their thematic learning project. The project was built of Common Core standards that aim to give kids a deeper understanding of what they are learning.

From old ghost towns and learning about the mountain men and cowboys that used to roam the land, students wrote informational essays, studied minerals and even wrote a commercial to entice new people to move to Arizona, the paper said.

“The excitement showed by the kiddos with the ghost towns was amazing, so we developed a whole unit that lasts a few months into the semester,” Kelly Makay, a fourth-grade instructor, told the publication. “We pulled in all of our reading, writing, research and technology skills about Arizona history.”
