Harlandale Middle school students enjoyed a night of interactive learning during their Social Studies Night on Jan. 31.

Sixth grade students exhibited a wide array of projects in the cafeteria, which included poster boards highlighting different world cultures, historical events and characters. Proud parents walked around and admired every project.

“Tonight is about spreading social studies awareness,” HMS teacher Laura Uribe said. “Social studies includes not just history, but also a lot of geography, culture and economics. These projects are interesting, and it’s great for the parents to see them.”

The auditorium was transformed into a “living museum” where seventh grade students performed as prominent figures in Texas history, including David Bowie and Stephen F. Austin. In the end, every student received a round of applause.

The eighth graders participated in a friendly yet competitive relay inspired by U.S. history. In a game of girls vs. boys, the students competed to see who knew more about the geography and economy of colonial regions.

HMS teacher Kellie George was happy to see the kids interacting with their parents.

“I think Social Studies Night is a great opportunity to show parents what the kids are learning at school, and it’s a great way for us to meet the parents too, which is great,” George said.
