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.

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.
