Revolutionary lesson plan

By John Published: September 14, 2010

I spent part of a beautiful day today at Archbishop Hoban High School, where social studies teacher Jason Edwin Anderson put on an incredible living history lesson for about 375 fourth and fifth-graders from private and public schools around the area, including Robinson elementary school, which is down the hill from Hoban

The students and staff, dressed in Colonial-era garb, showed the students various aspects of 18th century math, history, economics and science, focusing on Ohio's only Revolutionary War fort, Fort Laurens,  down in northern Tuscarawas County near Bolivar. In the battle scene at the end of this video, the kids are throwing little plastic balls.
