CLASSROOM – Hobo
National Hobo Week gives us an opportunity to explore the language and the symbols of these wayward travelers in the classroom. Their language and words were designed to suit their lifestyle. They traveled long distances by foot, train, and with strangers. They owned few possessions – only what they could carry – and what they did own was vital to their survival.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Check out this week’s projects and share them with your students and their families. If you have ideas or comments you would like us to hear, share any of them by clicking on the contact us link.
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
