Academy Americana - Completing Grades 1-4
July 15-26 Early 20th Century: Change IS the Frontier!
Don your aviator's cap and goggles to explore the frontier of the 20th century! Build a plane like Amelia Earhart's and compare her flights to those of Lindbergh. Meet medical advances head on: The old vs. new in how we set bones, use Band-Aids® and more. Create your own hobo language with American Girl® Kit®. Or cross-stitch a decorative lid for the jar of peaches you’ll can. What will you buy for dinner with your World War II ration book? We’ll have a spelling bee with Molly® and cast our ballots, now that we won the right to vote! From suffragettes to Rosie the Riveter to Eleanor Roosevelt. From walking and wagons during the Dust Bowl to high-tech planes and cars: Change IS the frontier!
