Washington Center students in Ms. Amy Garbe’s and Ms. Erin Sosebee’s classes went on a Community Based Instruction (CBI) trip to the Upcountry History Museum. Students got a hands-on lesson about World War II and had the opportunity to walk around the museum to look at the exhibits. They learned how people in the Upstate helped the war effort by working in manufacturing to make fabric for the troops for uniforms, tents, belts and more. Students also got to see and touch WWII uniforms, and other WWII artifacts like ration stamps, a helmet, water canteen, and posters that taught us more about the history of WWII and the Upstate. Both classes report a fun and informative trip!
