Wheeler Students Visit Historical Society
Posted on 03/05/2024
Frank T. Wheeler Elementary School fourth graders recently visited the Connecticut Historical Society. During the visit, students participated in hands-on activities to introduce stories of moving to Connecticut. The students worked in teams to examine artifacts and documents from "immigration trunks" and uncovered many different family stories about moving to Connecticut. In the Making Connections exhibition, students tried out the kinds of jobs held by immigrant groups who arrived in Connecticut in the 19th and 20th centuries.
