Fourth graders play hide-and-seek in the AFM

Mrs. Ponce’s fourth grade students trekked to the American Freedom Museum to play a not-so-classic game of hide-and-seek.  Mrs. Bynum, museum guide and educator, directed the lesson “Texas Hide-and-Seek”.  A lesson sheet was given to each pair of students with facts about Texas and famous Texans throughout U.S. history.  Instead of the students hiding the facts they were asked to seek out the answers to the clues.  Not only was the lesson fun, but it gave the kids the opportunity to reverse roles of hider to seeker while they used higher level thinking skills to answer their questions.
