Room 17 project presentations

The boys and girls in Room 17 were so busy creating their native american projects. Then they got into different committees and organised a presentation day for some other classes.

Room 1 were lucky enough to get an invite and they listened intently to all the cool facts and looked at the wonderful presentations.

We learned so much and then we had to vote for our favourite project.

Thanks so much to Room 17 for the invitation and for all the hard work that you put in!
