Historic Columbia Visits DFES

Last Friday, Celia Galens from Historic Columbia brought a traveling trunk full of WWII propaganda and games for our children to experience! This was a wonderful touchstone experience to begin our WWII unit of study. Lots of collaboration and conversation was had by all! Ask your child to tell you what they learned!
