DHS needs old items

December 6, 2007

The De Soto High School History Department is seeking historical items to use for hands on learning in classrooms.

This could be old advertisements, campaign buttons, ration cards, anything WWI or WWII related, cards, comics, newspapers, letters, flapper dresses, old-fashioned radios and basically anything that is old and would help to give students a better understanding of what it would be like to live in times passed.

Having something to hold, touch, listen to and play with makes so much more of a difference than reading a textbook.

Please contact Adrianne Lehrman at alehrman@usd232.org or at 583-8370 ext. 6032 to donate items.
