Registration is now open for South Dakota’s Largest Classroom at the 2019 South Dakota State Fair. The Largest Classroom event will take place on Thursday,
Aug. 29, and Friday, Aug. 30, 2019.
Participating schools will be able to take part in specialized programming, including watching the Bengal Tiger Encounter, visiting the Noah’s Way Exotic Animal Petting Zoo,
and learning from the Hillbilly Silly Science Spectacular. Visits to a one-room schoolhouse, the Dakotaland Museum, FFA Ag Adventure Center, and 4-H and open
class exhibits are also part of the classroom agenda.
“It’s a great way for teachers to kick off the school year, as well as a great way for students to learn outside of the classroom,” said Peggy Besch, State Fair manager. “I
encourage schools to take advantage of this hands-on learning opportunity.”
The classroom is open to public, private and home schools. Teachers are encouraged to register as soon as possible. The South Dakota’s Largest Classroom program is free to
students, teachers and chaperones. Lunch and parking will also be provided. The registration form can be obtained at sdstatefair.com or by calling 605.353.7340.
