D.C. Everest Idea Charter School hosts Civil War Palooza


D.C. Everest fifth graders had the chance to step back in time for a history lesson.

The elementary students traveled Thursday to the district's Idea Charter School in Weston to see a Civil War Palooza.

The event gave students at the project-based Idea school the chance to showcase the projects they've been developing.

"Students are studying the Civil War era. But they chose the topic they wanted to focus on. They must decide what they want to learn and how they want to learn. They must go really in-depth," explained Student Advisor Sue Thompson.

Students displays were set up inside the school and out.

They showcased famous people from the Civil War era, how people lived during those times, and the toll the war took on this country.

Students also held an open house for the general public.
