Discovery Students in the 5th grade have researched locations, people, and events in Spokane History by looking through primary source documents, and newspapers found in the NW Room of the Spokane Public Library and photos in the archives of the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture.
|When their reports were finished, students went on-location to film their findings. A Spokane History Video was edited by the students. This website has been created with the last six years (1998-2004) of student reports edited by a team of students.|
|This site was entered in the International Cyberfair Competition in 1998 and 1999. This project won 3rd place in Category 6: Historical Landmarks . It has been revised and improved with each successive year's reports.|
We invite you to look around and view Spokane with historical eyes!
