Clayton's Civil War Test

Clayton's history teacher is so much fun!  The kids have been studying the Civil War, and today was their test.  Instead of a regular pen and pencil test, she organized this whole scenario that made it more like a game.  The kids had to go to stations and answer questions about battles and key figures.  If the "platoon" missed a question, one of their soldiers got shot (red crepe paper tied around their arm) and went to the infirmary for an "elixir" (timeline to fill out).  When their timeline was correct, they could return to battle.  Waayyy more fun than a regular test!
