4th Graders learns
 about the Civil War

Drew Central Elementary fourth graders were mesmerized as Dr. Max Terrell, dressed as a Union infantry soldier, told real life stories about the Civil War. His ancestors had served in the Union Army and he read many letters written to family members in the 1800ís. He shared artifacts. Among those were clothing items and tomb stone rubbings. The students learned about websites that are available for tracing their genealogy. Students had been studying the causes of the war and this was the perfect way to bring it to life. This event was provided through the Southeast Education Renewal Zone (ERZ) and UAM which is support for teachers.
