Our Savior Lutheran Third Graders Take a Break to Learn Some History

Today we took a break from our fast paced trip to study a little history.  We are traveling through the southeast, learning about cotton plantations and slavery.

It seemed like a natural to stop for a day and learn a little about the Civil War.  To do this we listened to the story, Pink and Say by Patricia Polacco.  This is the touching story of two young 15 year old boys who are fighting for the North  in the Civil War.  It is a story that shows the sadness of the war but also the bravery of the two young men trying to do the right thing.

I recommend the book to everyone.  Read it with a tissue close by!
