Students' Research Takes Them around the World


Byline: Threse Bonnan

It's the holidays, and your time is limited. Roselle Middle School understands.

The sixth-grade students are offering the community an opportunity to go "Around the World in 80 Minutes" beginning at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at Roselle Middle School, 500 S. Park St. There is no admission fee for this world-class tour.

This special holiday presentation combines geography, culture and holiday traditions. Students selected a country to study in depth. They presented their research in the form of a map depicting the location of their country, the industrial and agricultural products produced there, and the population and economic development with the country of their choice.

"Students were able to select a country to study which had some personal meaning for them," said sixth-grade language arts teacher Marge Landers. "Some children selected countries of their national origin or places they had visited. Some had friends or relatives living in the country of their choice. In all, about 30 countries are represented in the presentation."

The students also prepared oral reports about the culture of their country and a display of holiday traditions. A field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry to see the International Christmas Tree display was part of their research in tradition.
