Seventh and eighth grade students from El Dorado Christian School traveled to Kansas City on Wednesday, May 10, to tour the World War 1 Museum and Memorial. The tour was scheduled for two hours; however the ECS students stayed, asked questions and continued discussing all they had seen. “Museum visits encourage experiential learning, which has been proven to be one of the most effective methods of teaching. From listening to WWI-era music, poetry and speeches in Reflection Rooms to learning how camouflage and artillery work on the Interactive Tables, students are able to engage with the subject matter in ways they can’t by simply reading a textbook.” There is wonderful information (including the quote) that you can find on the WW1 website at www.theworldwar.org. Standing with the KC skyline behind them with their teacher, Mrs. Cheryl Eslinger, are (from left) Isabelle Bryson, Jordanne Steuck, Kryasen Leonard, Brayden Housh, Josiah Batson, Chad Ramsey, Kiely Messick, Tevis Edmiston and Abigail Reasoner.
