Janet Lawton here. I’m with Small Planet News Service. We make childrenÃs TV. Our latest show, Retro News has just been released on DVD. To celebrate, we are sponsoring a series of free learning events for homeschoolers where kids get to play reporter and ask questions of an eyewitness about an historical event.
The series is called, Connect To History ( www.connecttohistory.com ). We are lining up speakers from all over the world, the good news is you donÃ t have to travel. We do it all by conference call. We believe students will enjoy and benefit from conversations like these.
Our first call will be on January 25th. At 11:30 AM EST / 8:30 AM PST. Kids will be asking questions of World War ll veteran, Petty Officer, Mel Stokes. Mr. Stokes is a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross and he participated in the Normady Invasion.
To submit a question and register for the call, study guides and pre-call videos, kids and parents should go to www.connecttohistory.com
We are hoping you can help us get the word out. If appropriate, please forward this information to any of the parents in your organization who could benefit. If you have questions about the website or the event please feel free to call me at 407-678-1400.
