Reading, Writing and 'Rithmetic in the One-Room Schoolhouse

http://edsitement.neh.gov/view_lesson_plan.asp?ID=319

Description: For young children, the experience of attending school strengthens their growing sense of independence and their relationship with the world beyond their family. This lesson focuses on this universal experience, using original photographs to give students a vivid impression of how American children received an education a hundred years ago. They learn about a one-room schoolhouse, seeing how children learned, played and traveled to school. This lesson encourages students to explore the similarities and differences of being a student in a one-room schoolhouse versus attending their own well-equipped, modern school Standards 1.4.1 and 2.1.2

Uncle Jed's Barbershop

http://www.mcps.k12.md.us/curriculum/socialstd/grade2/Uncle_Jed.html

Description: Using the children's story Uncle Jed's Barbershop by Margaree Mitchell, students discover not only the differences between life now and long ago, but how the same economic principles still apply. In the early 1900s, Uncle Jed is saving his money to buy his own barbershop, but when his niece needs an operation, or when he loses his $3,000 savings during a Great Depression bank closure, he must save much longer than he once planned. Standards K.3, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 2.4.3, and 3.5.3
