Several Seaside Neighborhood School eighth graders presented their history projects at Florida’s History Day. Students in Brian Michie’s U.S. History classes presented their projects at the state contest in Tallahassee. Sponsored by the Museum of Florida History, Florida History Day is an annual, statewide activity that enhances the teaching and learning of history at elementary and secondary levels. Florida joins 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, and international schools in East and South Asia as an affiliate of National History Day, which was established in 1974. National History Day promotes history in the classroom by offering students the resources and support to do original research about people, ideas and events of the past.
