All Aboard The History Connection, where students become “Time Travelers” journeying to meet and connect with famous historical figures from America’s past.
“Time Travelers” learn exciting facts about a critical time in our nation’s history, engage in fun activities, gain appreciation for America’s past, and realize our nation’s potential for the future.
Sojourner Truth (Artists-in-Schools artist Annette Jefferson) and the African American Civil War Soldier, greet “Time Travelers” at action stations where firsthand stories of true-life joys, sorrows and tests of courage are shared. Characters guide them step-by-step in completing creative, period-related projects such as “quilt” making and “'listing for the war.”
