Some elementary-school students in Zeeland, Mich., learned about World War I by wearing uniforms from that period and handling other artifacts. "I think it's good for them to just experience the different types of clothing from long ago," said first-grade teacher Joelee Sizemore. "We've talked a lot about how things are different now as opposed to in the past, and this is a really good tie-in from that because now they have some idea of the types of clothes that were worn."
