Description: Through the Decades (1900-2000)
This class will engage all 5 of your senses while we study what life was like during each decade. We will touch on notable people and events but focus more on popular culture of the times. For each decade we will try popular foods, listen and discuss music, fashion, arts and entertainment. Many genres of music will be discussed but the ones we listen to will be clean.
