The Civil War
All Chatham 7th grade students learned a bit about the Civil war, by living it on Wednesday May 13th. The students became the soldiers by donning replica uniforms. They then set about by pitching tents and setting up camp on the school grounds. The project included several subjects: Science, where students worked on outside medical procedures. Math, students worked on scale models of battlefields and disbursement of troops. English and Language Arts students read old journals and letters and wrote diary entries and condolence letters.
