Remembering the fallen
A more sombre mood prevails today in Room 2. I have brought in a family taonga. The children are now deep in an inquiry on what this treasure can possibly be. They have touched it, but absolutely no information has been provided. Not a word. Nothing. Not even that it relates to events in World War I.
The children are having to use effective key-wording and research to unlock its secrets. I am looking forward to their presentations (later on today) as they educate me on my own history.
Update - we have been busy making pom poms (as part of our enviro-week) with Room 22, so the kids will present their slide shows on Monday or Tuesday. Can't wait!
