On May 11, 2012, sixth-grade students at Read Mountain Middle School hosted the 2nd annual International Day celebration. To prepare for this day, students researched a country, wrote a 5-7 paragraph research paper, and completed a collaborative project in which they shared what they learned with elementary students from Cloverdale Elementary. In this presentation, middle schoolers in groups of three to four created a booth full of visuals and interactive features, gave the elementary school students an overview of the country, and engaged the students in an interactive activity such as food tasting or a trivia game. Both the middle school and elementary students had a wonderful time and learned a tremendous amount. – Submitted by Angela Myers, Read Mountain Middle School
