This story has been hot on social media for the past few weeks – and I find myself going back to look at the pictures over and over again.

In case you missed it, an elementary school in Oklahoma is undergoing renovations. When old chalkboards were pulled from the walls, fantastical drawings on even older chalkboards – dated 1917 – were uncovered. Seemingly frozen in time are these moments of education from yesteryear.

The school’s administration is researching ways to preserve these incredible bits of history – within the school – which is an excellent idea!
