FLOMATON HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY FAIR
FLOMATON HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY FAIRApril 26, 2017
Open to the Public from 8:00-11:00am
The major focus of the Flomaton High School History Fair
highlights the research of the students, but it also seeks to spark a genuine interest in learning for students of all ages.
This year, our history and English teachers are collaborating to assist our 10th and 11th grade students in researching various topics in time periods throughout American history. Instead of just writing a traditional research paper, however, they are going to be presenting their theses in a visual format. Our student council will sponsor the first Flomaton High School History Fair.
While the major thrust of the history fair is the student work, we have also invited members of our community to come set up historical displays. Several of our local historical societies have agreed to set up booths with local artifacts. We’ve invited numerous museums, historical parks, and other educational organizations. They are going to setup displays with local history, photographs, models, artifacts, etc. We have an extensive list of participants ranging from the USS Alabama to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos to our own local historical societies. We will also be hosting a non-competitive antique car show for the students to see how automobiles have changed over time. Volunteer members of the FHS Student Council will dress in historical costume to serve as tour guides. This will be a rewarding experience for our students and our community.
The date is Wednesday, April 26, 2017, and the time is set from 8am-2pm. The general public is invited to tour the history fair from 8-11 that morning. Our school is located at 21200 Highway 31 in Flomaton, Alabama. Our school website is flomatonhs.com. We’ve also created a Facebook page for the history fair.
