Museum displays student history projects

Students and parents perused projects at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley from 18 elementary schools in Danville, Alamo and San Ramon and enjoyed pink lemonade and cookies last week.

"I've always loved history. You can use it as a vehicle to teach so many other subjects," said retired teacher Gail Kamerer, who organized the event.

Teachers have no textbooks on local history, so they have to get creative about the way they teach it, she said. This was the first year the museum has shown the student works, and both teachers and parents said they hoped it would become an annual event.
