Landstuhl Elementary Middle School
The fifth grade curriculum involves a study of colonial times. In order to make the material real and relevant, Sharon Emerling, Maxine Reid, and Mark Wilburn let fifth graders participate in a day of Colonial Activities at Landstuhl Elementary Middle School. These activities are designed to show how artifacts were created and work was done before the modern days. The students were involved in making candles, creating artwork, cooking, dancing, quilt making, and other hands-on activities.
