Spring 2014: Windows to the Past
If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday. ~ Pearl S. Buck
When was it acceptable to eat meals with your hands? What is a "Hooverville"? When was the game Monopoly most popular? What was the average age of a solider in the Civil War? Do we still play pioneer games today?
Join us as we travel through five historical time periods that helped shape today’s America. Your child will have a hands-on history adventure through interactive lessons, crafts, and games. This week history comes to life!
Reserve your child’s spot today!
