A Digital Walk Through States Fair

Harrisburg Academy’s 4th grade held its annual States Fair on Friday, April 21, 2017 in  Louis Lehrman Gymnasium.  Seventeen states were represented at States Fair this year.  Each student chose a state to investigate.  They created show boards and chose a food or drink to prepare that is associated with their state.

Thanks to our visitors of all ages who attended States Fair and interacted with our students.  For those who were unable to join us, we invite you to take a digital walk through Harrisburg Academy’s States Fair experience!

Fourth graders began preparing for States Fair with a Mock States Fair.
