Kindergarten Antique Road Show

The Kindergarten Students had their own version of Antiques Road Show.  They took their Antique Show and Tell project on the road to the Butte Senior Living Center.  Each student told about their antique item and what they could learn about the past.  The residents have a great deal of information to add about the past.  The Kindergarten students always love their time with the residents.
