Students and teachers from across the Prairie South School Division met at the Western Development Museum on Thursday for their Regional Heritage Fair.

Kids who were selected from their school's Regional Fair got to present posters they created after they researched a topic from Canada's history or culture. Presentations ranged anywhere from the national anthem, the Halifax explosion, to Chris Hadfield and even hockey.

One Palliser Heights student, Lucy Mclean, did her poster on the Plains Cree and how they lived.

"So what I'm doing is I'm talking about their food, their tools, their clothes and their teepees," she said. "So my board's kind of explaining how they ate, how they made their tools, how they made their clothes and how they made their teepees and houses."

The aviation section of the museum was filled with posters boards, and kids got a chance to present their topic to other students and judges. The amount of effort and research everyone put into their posters was something all their teachers found impressive.

"I'm really proud of the kids and its just a great opportunity for them," said Heather Rauscher, a teacher at Caronport Elementary School. "They've already had a chance to share their knowledge at their school and now to get to share it with others and with just other students is just great for them."

To add a little more fun into the day, students also got to take part in various workshops throughout the day that were put on by the Saskatchewan Science Centre, the Saskatchewan Burrowing Owls Centre, the Saskatchewan Archeological Society, and the Western Development Museum.



Along with the presentation and judging, awards were also given out based on the amount of research, knowledge of the topic and the display.
