Kids get a taste of colonial life at Bubb School

Original post made on May 28, 2010

"Join the navy!" shout two boys clad in cavalier shirts and tri-cornered hats. They stand at the entrance to WilliamsBubb, a corner of Mountain View's Bubb Elementary School that for the day has been transformed. Just for today, it's 1775 in Colonial Williamsburg.

THANK YOU for posting this news story. The kids, parents, and teachers at Bubb work hard and enthusiastically every year to continue this Bubb tradition. It's very nice for the "Voice" to recognize them. As you say in your story, "it's a great way to get them interested in the history." Even though my son is now in 9th grade he tells me that this "hands on" project is his favorite memory of Bubb.
I also want to add that there's another MWVSD school that has a similar tradition of colonial recreation and historical immersion. Next year I hope you can spotlight Landelsberg at Landels Elementary School.
Ahoy, maties!
Sincerely, Ellen Wheeler
