Grade 1 goes 100 years back in time

Grade 1 is wrapping up their Unit of Inquiry entitled “Where We Are In Place and Time.” They have been learning about how children’s lifestyles have changed over time.  To find out about a typical school day 100 years ago, the children and their teachers came dressed up like children from the past.  They got to experience a typical school day 100 years ago doing the three R’s: Reading, Writing and Arithmetic!

The boys and girls were separated, they had old names, they practiced chant reading together, doing sums and playing old games at recess. If you get a chance, ask a 1st grader if they prefer school now or 100 years ago!
