On February 20th, Ms. Bartell's and Mr. Pelkey's 8th grade Social Studies students visited the National Marine Corps Museum to tour the WWI exhibit and study the military aspects of WWI. What a great way to wrap up their unit studies on WWI and the Roaring 20s. They have been examining the causes of WWI, focusing on the factors leading to US entry into the war, and the effects of the changes in military technologies used during WWI; such as, trench warfare, chemical weapons, machine guns and aircraft.
