Sioux City Public Museum
See local history through the eyes of 4th grade students
Prepare to be amazed – Sioux City’s 4th grade students have done it again! Every year students all over Sioux City create models and posters of Sioux City buildings. Then Sioux City Public Museum staff picks some of the best to be on display at the Museum during April and May when school groups tour. You’ll see markers you know (War Eagle, Floyd Monument), buildings you’ve seen (Castle on the Hill) and places you definitely will want to visit (Palmer Candy).
Many of the students use cardboard, popsicle sticks and Styrofoam to build all kinds of different Sioux City landmarks and scenes from the past. If you are looking forward to making a 4th grade history project next year, stop by the Museum for ideas what project you might like to make and how to build your creation. The exhibit, now in its 27thyear, will be on display through May 12 when students will be honored at a reception from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Blue ribbons will be presented to all of the students who were part of the exhibit at an awards ceremony from 2:30 to 3 p.m. Special awards will include the “Student Choice Award” voted for by 4th grade students during school tours.
