Elementary School Throughout the Ages
Our web site is about elementary school throughout the ages. Have you ever wondered how kids in ancient Egypt learned? Do you know what pounce is? And, what's an inkhorn? At your school, do the boys get ten lashes for misbehaving to the girls? You can learn how school subjects, recesses, lunches and classrooms have changed by clicking on a timeline showing American schools from 1600s to today and on a globe of ancient civilizations. Relive the school days of other generations and cultures by reading and listening to our interviews with family and friends. Click around to read about disciplinary methods or how to become a teacher yourself. Our lesson plans will tell you how to interview people about their school days, create a time capsule and even how to make a quill pen and walnut shell ink! Finally, take our quiz to see what you've learned and grade us on our report card. We hope to get an A+ and would love to hear about your elementary school experiences.
