100 Days of SchoolPublished by angela.killian on Thu, 02/09/2012 - 14:50
Can you imagine what life in school was like a 100 years ago? Many schools were small; often they had only one room. There was no running water and the heat came from a fireplace behind the teacher's desk. Windows were usually high so that the children could not see out and be distracted! Most of the work was done with chalk on a slate, because books and paper were very expensive.
Mt. Loafer Elementary school students have been celebrating the 100th day of the school. Poor Mrs. Bradley's class; I am sure that attending school in the 21st century was quite a culture shock for them! We are glad we didn't live 100 years ago.
