Teachers learn about Remembrance Day

Teachers became students this past week. To help them prepare for their Remembrance Day lessons, a group of social studies and history teachers from various southern Alberta school divisions were hosted by the Lethbridge Military Museum for an evening. The educators say the tour helped give them a special understanding of Lethbridge’s role during wartimes, and it’s a nugget of knowledge they can pass along in their classrooms.  

The Lethbridge Military Museum is open from 12-4 p.m. on Wednesdays, but special tours outside of those hours can be arranged by calling the museum.
