On Tuesday, Sept. 22, our eighth grade students walked to the Yarmouth Historical Society for a slide show presentation about Yarmouth history. The slide show included "then and now" photographs of Main Street, images of the various mills which occupied the three falls on the Royal River, and ship building activities in the harbor. Excited chatter periodically erupted from the audience as students viewed old photographs and recognized landmarks.
A walking tour of Main Street followed, on Friday, Sept. 25, providing students the opportunity to share and discuss knowledge gained from the slide show presentation. Bright sunshine and crisp Maine air provided the perfect opportunity for students to engage in these learning experiences beyond the classroom walls. Thank you to the Yarmouth Historical Society for sharing their resources and expertise.
