The Dawes County Museum, ESU13 and northern panhandle schools partnered again this year to bring the Historical School to third and fourth graders. Vicki Kotschwar is the school Marm in the 1880's setting.
Students practice spelling, orthography (Handwriting), math and reading. They also enjoy a lunch in a pail and get to dress the part if they wish.
Chadron Intermediate students were enthusiastic about the experience and one said, "It is fun to pretend you are in history." Students from several surrounding area schools plan to attend the Historical School this week.
