Hanukkah & Candle Making

Third grader, Nate S., teaches his class about the dreidel game and Hanukkah. As vacation nears, students have been sharing various traditions throughout the last few weeks.

Third grade students compare their lives, with children from the 1600s.  Mrs. Marshall’s class tried their hand at candle-making, as just one chore people long ago had to complete so that they had light for cooking, reading and cleaning. Though the students enjoyed the outcome, they did say their “arms were tired.” They talked about having to do a long list of chores each day with minimal school….they concluded that the 21st century was a bit more their style!
