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!
