Fourth graders walked up to the Salem City Cemetery last week to participate in several learning activities. Students used subtraction to solve and find how many years people lived, looked for people who had served in the military, and also tried to find the person who was born the earliest in history.
Students observed the plants and animals that they saw, as well as the weather and clouds. They also looked for unique designs on headstones and did pencil rubbings.
Finally, students wrote about the thoughts and feelings they had while visiting the cemetery. It was a beautiful day to not only learn, but to honor those who are laid to rest in our city's cemetery.
