Mystery History celebration is a DCS Montessori (DCSM) yearly tradition among its upper elementary students. Scheduled close to Halloween, traditional costumes of superheroes, witch hats and goblin attire are traded in for costumes depicting historical figures.
Celebrating the 20th annual Mystery History event, students dressed as historical figures from the Renaissance era and performed a first-person monologue without revealing the person’s name to see if audience members could solve the mystery of who they were representing.
Mystery History provides a fun educational opportunity for students to learn about historic figures while developing their public speaking skills.
