Whiteford Elementary has been busy traveling back in time in honor of reading.
The school is celebrating reading month in March with a theme, “Time Travel with a Book.”
The school used cardboard cutout of a 1960s van as its time machine. Teachers and aides dressed in clothing from decades past and music director Todd Schreiber helped set the tone through the use of music.
Whiteford students have been traveling back to four different eras, a news release said.
Every Friday, students have the opportunity to study another era, read about it or watch a movie.
Each grade level was assigned an era. Kindergarten and first graders have pre-historic times; the second grade has medieval times; third and fourth-graders were given the Wild West and fifth-grade has the 1960s and early 1970s.
Students have weekly at-home reading tasks to encourage more reading outside of school.
On March 30, the school will host a day-long Time Travel celebration to cap off activities.
