We're still here! As mentioned, it's school vacation week, so we will post our finds on Monday when we return. We learned an interesting story about our bayonet from the family that used to own the farm house where our school is based as well.

This is my first post on T-net. Just wanted to say this thread inspired me to stop skulking around this site everyday and finally sign up! What a wonderful thing you are doing with these children. Getting kids really engaged and excited about our history is what this country needs more of. Keep up the phenomenal work.

I have to add: the kindness, generosity and support shown by all members of this site is astonishing and like nothing I have ever seen. I am proud to be a new member.

If any other teachers out there are interested, I will be developing a curriculum to help guide this class going forward. It will be aligned with Common Core standards and VT State Standards across all subject areas (meaning it will cover content in science, social studies, math and ELA) at all grade levels. I'll be happy to share the curriculum and any lesson plans developed along with it.

You should make a posting on a site called "Teachers Pay Teachers". You can charge what you like, perhaps only a few dollars, perhaps nothing. Being a former teacher myself, many many more teaching eyes will see it there. It is your intellectual property and its righteous of you to share it to help your peers

Do you have a final picture of the bayonet after stabilization / preservation / cleaning (cringe I don't know it's proper to clean it)? Perhaps I missed it skimming through?

Thanks for the tip. I've use TPT for other lessons and units I've created in the past. I'm still working on developing the curriculum for it, last summer was a little too busy to sit down and map it out.

Additionally, we recently received a lot of new information on our Bayonet that we will be posting soon (I want the students to help write it up, as this was a school find and not a personal one). Check back in a few days for the updates!
