Renaissance Faire


  faire             faire

  English 9 students in Miss Wallace's class spent the month of December researching and writing formally about a topic of their choice from the Renaissance time period in order to understand Shakespeare's England. Students then transformed their research into an interactive project that was presented at their Renaissance Research Faire on December 21st. Other classes, parents, and administrators visited the faire and took part in the experience. Students also dressed from the time period and English 9 students Reece Berger and Rachel Vickers were chosen as this year's Renaissance King & Queen. Students participated in cross-curricular activities in Mrs. Smith's science class where they performed alchemy by turning copper into gold in their Gold Penny Lab and took their notes on Copernicus with quill and ink. During the lunch period study halls, students participated in a jousting tournament as well. This year's jousting champion was Dylan Hedrick. Great job English 9 & thank you to all those who visited our Renaissance Research Faire!
