Questions for Photo 3

1. Compare the appearance of the school in Photo 3 with its appearance in Photo 1. How is it different? How is it similar? Offer some suggestions why this might be.

2. Look at Photos 2 and 3 of the Freeman School as it appeared in the early 1900s. What kinds of activities appear to be going on in each of these photographs? Do all the people in the photographs seem to be teachers and students? Who might the other adults be in the photographs? Why might they be at the school?
