This is an excellent culminating experience for 5th graders as this is part of our social studies curriculum. The exhibits were interesting and kept the students' attention. The question sheet provided helped to keep the students focused.

Our students enjoyed all of the hands on activities and presentations. The presentations this year were more on the kids level and presenters were very patient and helped the students understand the information. Our students saw the buses arriving and most of them said, "AWWWWW! Do we have to go now?" Thank you for giving our students this opportunity to enrich their understanding of life in Louisiana in the past. Rhonda Balsamo Lusher Charter School
