Jordak Elementary teacher Mrs. Tucker transformed her second grade classroom into a Military Museum to help honor our military Veterans. She invited students to come in to look at, touch, and even try on the authentic artifacts. Students had to put on gloves, just like they would at a real museum, while they visited each of the tables to get an up-close look at and touch the uniforms, pictures, and other items that are part of Mrs. Tucker’s family from past military experiences.

“This is such an important part of our history that I really wanted to share it with our students so they could get a hands-on experience with these items,” says Beth Tucker. “To be able to see these authentic items and then compare them with things we have today is really a special experience not just for the students but the staff too!”
