Jennie Moore Elementary School’s fourth grade SAIL class re-created Hooverville. Students constructed shelter from various discarded scraps of wood, cardboard, paper and other items. They shared tins of sardines, listened to depression era music and helped each other as a community.

This real life learning experience was in conjunction with their novel study of the book “Bud, NOT Buddy,” by Christopher Paul Curtis.

The project culmination will include community service to aid homeless persons in the Charleston area.
