Your 5th grade teachers are creating a Civil War Simulation/Experiential Learning Day, as a culminating activity for the Civil War Unit in Social Studies. Each class will rotate to all 9 classrooms. Each classroom will be transformed into one of the major events of the Civil War. We are not requiring students to dress up for this event; however, it creates a more realistic simulation when dressing in Civil War era clothing. The teachers WILL be dressed up as well.
The Civil War simulation will take place on:
Thursday, October 27, 2016
Some examples of Civil War era clothing:
Boys- dark pants, white button down shirt, vest, dark shoes, brimmed hat, overalls, dressing like a soldier will be acceptable
NO WEAPONS or anything resembling weapons will be allowed.
Girls- long dresses, aprons, bonnets, long skirts, button down shirts with vest
BE CREATIVE and use your resources to ensure that your costume is as accurate as possible.
We look forward to a great simulation and an even better learning experience
