Ms. Barb Kay visited our fifth grade class for a meet the press discussion. The year was 1810 and the United States is dealing with a few issues. Each student represented a person from that era – such as An Illinois Farmer, Former President Jefferson, Tecumseh, A New England Shop Keeper, etc. The students discussed the problems and possible solutions, not everyone agreed and the discussion got quite lively!
