Soaring Hawk Brings History to Life

Students stand outside historical building

Dozens of second-graders from Soaring Hawk Elementary took over downtown Castle Rock and some of its most historical landmarks. Students in the four classes have been working hard all year to learn more about Castle Rock's founding fathers, traditions and its landmarks. Students were able to pick their favorite topic and become local experts. After researching their projects they determined the best way to share their knowledge with their classmates. Student choices included writing songs, creating slideshows, making brochures and posters.

Parents and community members were then invited to share in the excitement while the second-graders became tour guides and offered the historical walking tours showcasing what they learned and teaching other adults about Castle Rock and its rich history.
