Wild About Weather!

Live Learn Act Photo Display

The Children's Room has partnered with local non-profit Live Learn Act (LLA) to SHOW ME YOUR SCHOOL! Students around the world, including Winchester elementary school children, have been participating in LLA's global photography project, which asks children around the world to connect by envisioning what it would be like to attend each other's school. Results from this project will be on display in the Children's Room throughout the month of February. Come in and explore children's snapshots of life in their schools. Check out a few photos of the displays below!
