Star Reach students at South Jones Elementary recently presented “Lascaux III” in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the historical discovery of the cave complex near Montignac, France.  The original Lascaux contains more than 2000 Paleolithic cave paintings that are estimated to be close to 20,000 years old.  As a result of an in-depth study, the students developed a real-life simulation and presented the results of their inquiry in a variety of products including an art gallery, drawings, maps, poetry, postcards, a museum exhibit, and oral presentations.   Acting as tour guides, the Star Reach students effectively communicated their ideas and the information they learned enabling their many visitors to experience the students’ interpretation of the historic event.
Sixth graders in Ms. Holifield's Social Studies class discussed The Diary of Anne Frank while learning about the Holocaust. Students were asked to write a Narrative from the point of view of a key player mentioned throughout Frank's diary--including the cat belonging to Peter van Pels! Students were then given the option of dressing up while presenting their story about life in hiding during the Nazi occupation of Europe.
