We are learning about school in our grandparents days, and their grandparents days. We are going to have a day to dress up in clothes from the early 1900's and have a classroom like it was then. does anyone have any ideas for us?
so far we are going to write on slates (black paper and chalk), seperate the girls and boys, stand to answer questions, work at desks all day (rather than the mat), drink 'school milk' (they had that back then!) and have lessons that are like drills and group recitation. any other ideas for us?
