My ten year old daughter came home yesterday and announced her class/year are going to be learning about World War Two this term. She mentioned to her teacher that her Dad collects medals and the teacher asked if some could be brought into school to show the class. She went to school this morning with a message that there is no problem with that but the medals will not be taken out of my sight!
Today it appears I've been volunteered to go into school with medals etc and talk about them, the history behind them etc.
I'm sure a few members have done a similar thing so have you got any tips or suggestions as to how to go about it? What subject matters could I cover? What artifacts go down well with ten year olds? How do I stop boredom setting in?
I will have my German collection to select from, a few English items and possibly some American if I ask my brother nicely......
Any help would be appreciated!
