THERE'S NO BETTER WAY TO LEARN THAN FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE...
AND AS HILARY ZALLA FINDS OUT IN THIS WEEK'S COOL SCHOOLS, ACTIVE LEARNING IS MAKING A BIG DIFFERENCE FOR STUDENTS AT DENNIS ELEMENTARY.
Four score and seven years ago...a group of 4th graders grabbed their muskets to fight in the name of history...
They prepared their cannons and practiced using their weapons..
Well, it's not 1860, its 2013...and these kids obviously arent going to war...but they are learning about it!
it's civil war day here at Dennis Elementary school.
Civil War re-enactors are teaching the kids about different weapons and what hardships soldiers and their families had to endure. From seeing a cannon up close to learning about what clothes women wore back then...it's making history fun...and it's working.
