Hands-on history for Broadwater Elementary students

Students at Broadwater Elementary School in Helena will get some more hands-on education regarding Montana's history.

First Interstate Bank's David Peretto and Guy Almquist surprised Broadwater teachers Marla Unruh and Jodi Delaney by presenting them with a $250 check recently as part of the One Class At A Time program.

The money will go towards a model of a mountain that will reflect the mining history of Butte.

Unruh got the idea after after attending a history workshop with the Montana Historical Society; she said, "I wrote a lesson plan for that and I wanted to execute it so we are going to make a model of a mountain cut-away with the miners and everything and it will be a great history project."

Delaney noted, "Anytime you can do something hands-on with the students where they get to build it, see it, work with it, they learn it and remember it so much more effectively than anything out of a book."
