‘School Long Ago’ lesson gives Glen Head Elementary students a glimpse of the past
Glen Head Elementary School hosted unique lesson that gave students the opportunity to experience history.
Students dressed up and learned with tools that were used a hundred years ago. School officials say another class will take part in the lesson on Tuesday.
According to the North Shore Schools website, most American students in the 19th and early 20th centuries “attended a one-room schoolhouse taught by a single teacher with students ranging from five to 15 years old…The children appropriately dressed-up and went through a typical school day using slate boards, chalk, and ink pens for English and mathematical learning skills.”
