What a wonderful day third grade students had at the East Haddam Historical Society and Museum on June 3! Guided by docents Dr. Marianne Halpin , Lynne Meyer, Andrea Skwarek, and George Drenga, the kids explored different collections housed in the museum. Local agriculture, our well-known bridge, mills, the Victorian era, East Haddam sculptor Heinze Warneke, and William Gillette were among topics of interest classes investigated. It was quite a lot for 9-year-olds to absorb, but participating adults were amazed at the interest and focus their young guests displayed. Students were well-prepared to ask meaningful questions and provide prior knowledge to docents who chatted with them. Kids arrived and left the Museum enthusiastic about their experience. We can't wait to meet next year's class!
