Judge David Campbell Chapter, NSDAR, Visits McConnell Elementary School

Monday, September 24, 2018

Judge David Campbell Chapter, NSDAR, members Nancy Larson and Mary Bob Hagmann visited McConnell Elementary School in Hixson.  Ms. Larson presented a new lesson for about 100 fourth grade students on the making of a hero, identifying characteristics needed to emulate a hero. All eyes were fixed on her as she read The Man in the Red Bandanna. 

Followed were discussions and group activities emphasizing integrity. Students regrouped to demonstrate flag care, flag folding, and 100 percent knowledge and show of the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America. 

Education materials were donated from Daughters of the American Revolution, Judge David Campbell Chapter and included: America Under Attack, Sept. 11:  Then & Now, The Flag Code, NSDAR Publication, United We Stand, and, Patriots Day World Search, and Chapter of a Hero.

The fourth grade teachers said they were delighted to receive a lesson plan and supplies featuring the American Revolution---causes and significant battles of the Revolution. Ms. Hagman developed the unit and it has been submitted to Educational Resources, NSDAR. The lesson incorporated a Newberry award winning book: My Brother Sam Is Dead. Books were given to each classroom by the Judge David Campbell chapter.

Colored models brought the unit to life for students.  For students to demonstrate knowledge and understanding, cleared x-ray films had Revolutionary pictures clipped to shields for students to trace.  The subject for a research paper was identified by the picture. 

To assist students, the chapter donated 100 cleared x-ray films, 24 permanent black markers and 24 colored markers. 

Chapter members will return to read students’ papers and models in two weeks.
