Each year, students in grades 4-6 are encouraged to participate in History Day. Students select a historical topic that relates to the National History Day (NHD) theme and conduct research using primary and secondary sources. After analyzing and interpreting their sources and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history, students in grades 4 and 5 will present their work in a poster. Sixth grade students may select to write a paper, create a website, construct an exhibit, execute a performance, or produce a documentary. These products may be entered into the Fresno County History Day competition, with the possibility of advancing to state and national levels.
