This is an exercise for children to do to exercise their imagination and creativity . The idea is to get children thinking about a day in school in the past and then to draw a picture or write a little story.
There are old school houses in most communities so this is a very accessible monument type and this exercise aims to get the children thinking about what was different and what was similar long ago.
Suitable for children from 3rd to 6th class.
