History Comes to Life!

History Comes to Life!

5th Graders have been studying the events leading to the American Revolution.  “King George” aka Mr. Childers visited the classroom to collect taxes (candy) from the students.  This really gave them an idea of what it might have felt like to be a colonist in the 1770s.  Students learned the true meaning of “no taxation without representation” when they had to give their candy taxes over to the King!
