History Detectives – Guest Speakers

We have been very lucky to be joined by some guest speakers who have helped us understand how life has changed over time.  We have especially been trying to find out what life was like for our guest speakers when they were in Grade Two.

First we were joined by Keith and Irene (they are Miss M’s parents).  Keith spoke to the boys and Irene spoke to the girls.  They both were in Grade 2 in the 50s.  Next Andy (Heath’s dad) came and talked to us.  He was in Grade Two in the 70s.  Paula (Spencer’s mum) was out last guest speaker.  She was in Grade 2 in the 80s and she went to our school.  She told us that there are still some of the same teachers and our classroom was her classroom!

What are some things about school and life that have changed in the last 50 years?

What are some things about school and life that have not changed very much?

What were some things that are hard for us to imagine?
