This exciting program, developed in conjunction with a team of local educators, allows students to experience a day in the life of a 1918 Alabama school. Students will be transformed into 1918 students as they are outfitted in era-appropriate clothes, repack their lunches in baskets and pails, say the Pledge of Allegiance and study reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic. Students also get to experience writing with a nib pen and ink, doing their lessons on slates, learning an era-appropriate vocational training lesson, and playing games of the time period during recess. Teachers select either basket weaving (additional $2.00 supply charge per student) or gardening and plants as the vocational training topic for their class.
