A major theme for young children is communities. To help students gain a better understanding of their communities, I feel looking at communities of the past is both interesting and informative. During our study, we will look at earlier settlers in our area. We will investigate things like houses, transportation, clothing, cooking, work and play. We will invite older family members or people from our community to come into the classroom and share pictures, artifacts and stories. We will collect artifacts for a classroom museum and plan to visit our local historical museum and the Foxfire exhibits in Mtn. City, Ga.
