European Explorers Visit Gaynor

As the culmination of a weeks-long research project, Silver Cluster students brought their teachers and parents back in time as they presented their work as the European Explorers they were assigned. Students dressed up like their explorers, used props and/or pictures to add to the atmosphere, and read their work aloud. The presentations were engaging, informative, and even funny!
