• Third grade gifted students in Mrs. Peters class at Drake Elementary were assigned a Discovery Quest research activity that allows students to learn public speaking skills and independent research skills. Students chose a topic of interest to research and then presented their information to the class, using note cards and visual aids to enhance their presentation.  This photo features the students and some of their props.  The photo illustrates the variety of topics of interest to students in this class, such as Cleopatra, dance, history of soccer, history of monopoly, and pandas, to name a few.  Mrs. Peters was amazed by all of the hard work and effort each student put forth into his or her project and presentation.  Parents were also invited to class to hear the student presentations. 
    Great job, third graders!
