Then & Now: Life at the Turn of the Century

Then & Now: Life at the Turn of the Century

Students become historians as they interpret early-20th century history by examining Indian Motocycles, Rolls Royce automobiles, vintage Milton Bradley games, and Barney ice skates. In addition to a “then and now” scavenger hunt, students also handle real historic artifacts and work on a mock assembly line to better understand Springfield’s industrial past.
