What is my cultural heritage? Who is an influential person or historical figure that represents where I come from? How has this person made a significant impact on my heritage? Answers to these questions help define and tell the story of your heritage or culture. Our Dry Creek Panther community enjoys having students from many cultures around the world. It's very important that we see how unique we are as individuals, but also respect and appreciate how we are more alike than different.
What students will do:
All 4th - 6th grade students are invited to create a presentation board that highlights an inspirational person or historical figure that represents their heritage. Students are encouraged to research information about this person from family members, books, magazines, and online materials. Research should emphasize how this person has influenced your heritage in a positive way. If they choose, students are permitted to dress in cultural attire on the night of the event.
Students will display what they learned on a poster board (boards will be provided by the school). On the night of the event, students will stand at their posters and present information about the famous/inspirational person from their heritage. Students should be prepared to answer questions as families and students listen to the presentation.
Students will turn in their poster boards on Monday, December 11th in the Old MPR upon arrival at school.
Families are encouraged to bring a cultural celebration dessert to share.
Students in grades 4th - 6th that are interested in participating in this event should attend the HRC meeting on Wednesday, November 8th at 10 AM in the Panther Hall.
