St. Mary School (Gilroy) 5th Grade Participates in Living History Day
Assuming the roles of historical figures in the American Revolution, the 5th grade at St. Mary School participated in a living history day, Walk Through the Revolution, as part of their social studies curriculum. Students dressed in historical costumes and told the story of the Revolution as they acted out rehearsed lines of their characters, participated in battle scene skits, and competed on teams during the interactive day of history. To participate in the experience, parents prepared an “All-American” meal for the students and enjoyed observing the activities throughout the day. The event concluded with the students visiting the other classes in the school to share their characters’ roles in the American Revolution. This unique event was brought to St. Mary School by 5th grade teacher, Paula Reynolds, and has become an annual tradition.
