It was International Fair time Tuesday at Sheppard Elementary. Each year students spend weeks learning about their assigned countries from somewhere around the world. Everything from history to government to social studies and technology. Then they all gather together and show off what they learned to everyone else.
Nicholas Markel a student at Sheppard told us, "I enjoyed doing this project. It was a lot of fun. I like seeing the looks on their faces when they come by. And yeah the whole thing is really festive and it's interesting to see how the others are doing."
Every year the International Fair is a big success and the most important outcome is achieved. Students gain a great amount of knowledge about countries all over the world. This year 22 countries were represented at the event.
