Fourth-graders in a Kansas school recently wrapped up a yearlong study of historic Route 66 by building some of the landmarks with Lego blocks, creating slideshows and hosting a car show by members of Rollin' Nostalgia Car club. The project was inspired by teacher Babs Tims' childhood trips along the roadway, also known as the Main Street of America. Students visited nearby towns on the route and studied communities in other states for the project, which included science, math and social studies lessons. "It integrates well with all our subject areas," said Tims, who worked with other teachers on the project.
