6th grade National History Day: Taking a Stand in History
2/1/2017
The sixth grade completed their National History Day projects on January 31st and shared their papers, websites, documentaries and performances with parents, students and faculty members.  The theme of the day was Taking a Stand in History and the students were able to articulate how the subjects they selected to research reflected the powerful and inspirational ways people have stood up for what they believed in.

The extraordinary projects showed interdisciplinary depth of study and highlighted our students' special talents and interests.  We are very proud of all the students and we thank Ms. McDougall, Mr. Burke and Ms. Shapiro for all their hard work in bringing this complicated project together.     Students who win the Hunter History Day contest will go on to the NYC History Day Competition.  Winners will be announced soon, and parents will have access (when logged in to the school website) to the websites and performances when we finish the editing process.  Stay tuned!
