Full Circle School History Fair in MA


Date & Time: 
Mar 9 2017 - 5:30pm - 6:30pm

Full Circle students portray scientists, inventors

BERNARDSTON – What was photographer Dorothea Lange’s claim to fame? Did you know that Alexander Calder was the originator of the mobile, or that Jan Van Eyck was the first to master oil painting?

You can hear answers to these questions and many more Thursday, March 9, when Full Circle School students in grades 1 through 6 take on the roles of around two dozen ancient, medieval, Renaissance, Romantic and modern artists for the school’s annual History Fair. Titian, Rembrandt, Monet, and Edmonia Lewis are among other artists to be represented at the fair.

The fair will be held held at 5:30 p.m. at Full Circle School, 21 Parmenter Road, Bernardston, Mass. It is free and open to the public. It runs for about an hour.

As part of the school’s history studies, the event gives students the chance to research an array of historical figures, then portray them in an hour-long, living history festival that includes short speeches, songs and dance.

The fair showcases Full Circle School’s original education methods, and gives prospective families a chance to see the school in action. A small, independent elementary school now in its 43 nd year, Full Circle uses a one-room schoolhouse approach to foster a love of learning. It emphasizes project-based learning, problem-solving skills, as well as independent and small-group work.

For more information about the fair or about the school, please contact co-director John Friends: fullcircleschool1973@gmail.com.
