    Default A great way to celebrate the anniversary of D-Day!

    Hello, all!

    Another history teacher and I figured that a hands-on World War II lesson, serving as the conclusion to our unit on WWII, would be a great way to celebrate the anniversary of D-DAY. We spoke to more than 100kids over the course of 3 periods and the assistant principal even decided to stop in. Word spread pretty quickly around the school, and I also thought it was pretty cool that a lot of students asked to come in during their own free time/ between periods to check out the items I brought in.

    It was a thrill to see the kids so excited about this. It also was gratifying to see so many of them be able to apply what they learned in class to the items I brought in to share with them.

    Some of them, yes sir! We combined our two classes today.

    I work part time as a history teacher, and part time for my parents at the recycling facility. I also spend my time after school coaching!

    You have perhaps the greatest job ever, to be able to combine your job and your interests must make working so much enjoyable! And it must be great to teach history to those who are genuinely interested. If my plans to make a career at the Finnish Defence Forces fail, history teacher is my number two dream job!

    I noticed the student with the recently found civil defense helmet, twas a great find.

    Besides Doug's Wall O Helmets, the Garbage Finds thread is my favorite on the forum. Keep up the good work

    Regards,

    Thank you so very much for the kind words, gentlemen!

    I enjoyed myself thoroughly and each 45min period felt like it was over in an instant!

    Nice example of how history can be enjoyed by the younger generation, who generally are sadly far too interested in rubbish like face___k and the like nowadays. Well done!

    Thanks, gentlemen! All of the kids were very careful with the pieces I shared with them. There lots of valid questions/ comments and just in general the students were very engaged!
