Burlington Students Hype History

Posted: Updated:

Breaking away from the books and building something from scratch can be a valuable tool.

That was the idea behind 'History Day' today at Burlington Elementary School.

The fourth grade class chose a North Dakota history topic that appealed to them, and dove in deeper.

(Matthew Bosch, 4th Grade at Burlington Elementary School) "My project is called North Dakota Settlements and what I learned more about is the railroads because I studied so hard about it."

(Aurie Winkler, 4th Grade at Burlington Elementary School) "Many people had to share the same things and the first system was called bartering and bartering means trading without money."

(Katie Knecht, 4th Grade at Burlington Elementary School) "I learned that there were 35 Roughriders in North Dakota."

(InDee Thunshulle, 4th Grade at Burlington Elementary School) "The number one person that really stuck out to me was Peggy Lee because she's just amazing and pretty."

(Weston Wahus, 4th Grade at Burlington Elementary School) "They skinned animals, they didn't buy stuff. They did it themselves. Instead of hunting for one family they were hunting for the entire community."

(Kamryn Morrison, 4th Grade at Burlington Elementary School) "I can't believe they had to feed like 100 people. It took me an hour to make this and mine's a small loaf."

(Hope Spooner, 4th Grade at Burlington Elementary School) "Back then, their prices were really cheap. The potatoes were only .45 cents for a ten pound bag."

Students shared what they learned with parents and the rest of the school this afternoon.
