1920’s Day at co-op

Franci 27 Mar 2017 Homeschooling Uncategorized

In February we had a 1920’s festival at our homeschool co-op where we learned about some things that happened in the 1920’s in general, and in our area (Thomas Edison, who lived nearby, was actively inventing cool things; the Holland Tunnel between NJ and Manhattan was being built); we got to dress up in fun costumes, someone came in to teach us how to dance the Charleston, and we had a 1920’s themed feast. So much effort went into the whole event to make it a memorable and fun time for everyone. This is one of those posts where the photos will tell a better story than me. What a fantastic time!

Lots of fun photos here - you do make a picturesque flapper, Franci :-)
1920s was the one decade of U.S history that we studied in our limited high school history class - must have been a particularly eventful patch!

Indeed you do make a great looking flapper, Franci. Love the outfit.

It looks so entertaining and seems everyone is enjoying it!

But of course being a ‘flapper’ of the roaring twenties wasn’t exactly a compliment to a Christian :-). I’m sure you wouldn’t have been one of ‘those’ if you had lived back then….
