Fifth-grade students at Trinity Christian School have been exploring the world this school year.

As part of a year-long project to study various countries and learn about their respective cultures, geography, people and religions, each student was
required to research information about a particular country and then present what he or she learned at the “Nations Fair” at Trinity on Tuesday morning.

“This is a culmination of all of that,” fifth-grade teacher Amanda Darby said. “They have created a digital slide presentation and they have done an oral presentation to go with, and then created display boards that highlight some of the things from their slide presentation.”

To add some spice to their presentations, some students also brought dishes of food that consisted of a traditional recipe from their assigned country.

“Some brought artifacts and different things from places that they have visited to display with their boards,” Darby said.

In all, 14 fifth-grade students presented information on 14 countries, including India, Jamaica, Australia, Italy and Brazil.

After completing her research of India, Arlie Hum-phreys said she hopes she can visit the country someday and experience its beauty.

Luke Eanes was shocked to discover that the Amazon rainforest in Brazil is home to more than 55,000 types of plant species and that many more are yet to
be discovered.
