Students Showcase Museum Displays

Posted: Updated:

Local students didn't have to travel too far to take a journey back into North Dakota history this afternoon.

That was the idea behind today's 2nd annual grand opening of the Burlington Des Lacs North Dakota Museum.

A little over a month ago, the 4th grade class started researching historical events and figures.

Then, each student had to chose one of ten topics and write a paper on that topic.

Some of the topics included agriculture, fur trading, and Teddy Roosevelt.

They also practiced public presentation skills and later crafted displays all in anticipation of today's museum opening.

All of the projects were unveiled for classmates and community members to see.

4th Grade Teacher Mallory Brown says the museum is a chance for students to showcase their efforts and knowledge.

(Mallory Brown, Burlington Des Lacs 4th Grade Teacher)"The students work really hard all year long on learning how to be effective writers, learning how to be good speakers, and so this is a way for us to help them put all of those skills that they've been practicing together. And they like to show other what they've been learning all year long."

The museum is open to parents from 6:30 to 7:30 at the Burlinton-Des Lacs elementary school.
