Vancouver Heritage Fair
The History of Basketball
Hello! My name is Eleanor and my Heritage Fair Project is on the History of Basketball.
What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?
The most interesting thing I learned about my topic is how different basketball was when it was first invented and how different the rules were.
What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?
I learned that it doesn't matter how tall you are to play basketball as you can still be successful and fulfill your dreams.
How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?
Playing basketball is easier now because in the past, peach baskets were used as hoops but now, we have metal hoops, nets, and backboards.
