Heritage Fair time!!

This is a bit of a guest post today…Alicia, one of our former co-workers here at Them Days (we miss you very much!) e-mailed me some photos of the grade eight Heritage Fair projects. Her daughter is in grade eight, so she got to see them all.

(Oh, if anybody involved with the Heritage Fairs is reading this, I would LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVEEEE to be a guest judge for these sometime!)

Alicia says “There was a great mixture of projects there…All around, the kids did a great job with their research topics and it was evident that Them Days magazines was a big part of that!”

Awww…*blush* that is so great to hear!

I knew Heritage Fair time was coming up because we had some people come in to do research, including a couple of students who came here of their own volition–on a SNOW DAY!–and did some digging in the magazine back issues and archives. It’s rare to see students do their own research these days, so I was really excited when they came in!

So without further ado, here are a selection of projects from the 2014 Heritage Fair:

Ghost Stories of Newfoundland and Labrador

Alicia says the students were very knowledgeable and talkative, and it was a pleasure to be there and talk to them.

Thanks Alicia!
