Fourth Grade students at SDFAS have worked very hard over the past few weeks to research, write a report, and complete a model of one California Mission of their choice. The students presented their reports and creative models orally in front of the class to share what they had learned. The missions were on display in the fourth grade classrooms for other students to view and ask questions to gain a better understanding of Spanish influence on California’s history.
