5B is Investigating Past Societies in Social Studies this month. On Friday, October 3rd, we will be traveling to Orwell Corner to investigate how archeology and history help us understand the past.
Until then, we will investigate how oral histories help us with our understanding. Students have been asked to think about someone they would like to interview who has a personal memory of the past, from at least 50 years ago. Recording this interview in person or FaceTiming/Skyping would be the best way to gather information (jot notes). An organizer will be provided to help guide their questions. I will assign the due date for this in the next coming days.
Starting tomorrow, I am asking the students to bring in 3 personal items they would like to share with the class which describes how they lived, and what was important to them in the past (as a young child). Please encourage your child to leave any valuable/breakable items at home.
