We had the privilege of videotaping and photographing at Newtown Middle School Wednesday morning.
The 8th grade students reenacted the battle of Bunker Hill with Mr. Fab at the helm. About a dozen students were given the job of working as captains and given period time clothing for the re-enactment. The battle took place next to the school on the hill at Tyler State Park in Bucks County, PA.
The children seemed to throughly enjoy themselves as some got to slingshot amo (big wads of newspaper with tape), some students held flags and others carried paper bayonets to replicate the true feeling of the soldiers.
Kathy Peoples from Katydid Photography then presented a slideshow for the students to enjoy at an assembly following their re-enactment. Here are a few of the images to enjoy.
