Zavalla students learn by repeating history

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Civil War reenactment went on for most of the school day Friday in Zavalla.

The junior high and high school students took a break from the classroom, but not from learning.

"I think this is a good way to teach any grade history.  It's hands on, you can't beat that," said 8th-grader Jordan Courtney.

The school district broadcasted the event live via video conference to other school districts in Region Seven.
