We did a "Walk through History 'of that time with 5th graders. We made
weather vanes, weavings, became artists and did different types of portraits,
tagboard pull toys, etc. Kids really got into it and did an enactment/fair at the
end of the year in costume, becoming a person at that time and doing a job,
craft of that time with backdrops. Was wonderful. We worked on it all year long!
