School, Then and Now - Paperback
K - Grade 2. Functioning more as beginning readers than informational texts, these books provide cursory treatments of topics germane to childhood. Both feature historical and modern photographs of related technologies or activities on opposing pages so as to contrast the changes that time has brought. Students will be amused by many of them, such as the standard-issue schoolhouse slate and chalk being replaced by today's paper and pencil (School) and the comparison between playing jacks and video games (Toys).
