7th Grade Advisory is “Celebrating Diversity”

The seventh grade advisory theme this year is “Celebrating Diversity”.  In an effort to showcase diversity and the idea of embracing cultures the seventh grade advisories put on an International Fair at MSN. Each seventh grade advisory randomly selected a country to research. Students studied various cultures, traditions, people, past times, and created a display to showcase their research. We had the students walk around and explore: various table displays, engage and learn how to play games from different countries, taste new foods and drinks, and see a wide range of presentations. This was an activity to learn, experience, and engage with various cultures for our seventh graders as we continue to celebrate diversity.

You can see lots of pictures from this fun event in the Image Galleries.
