KMS Students Visit Wendell August Forge

Mrs. Bocci's 6th grade Discovering Literature students visited Wendell August Forge in Grove City recently.  The visit was an extension to the novel Johnny Tremain, which features a silversmith apprentice in Boston during the pre-revolutionary war era.  The Wendell August Forge utilizes, explains, and allows the students to experience how blacksmiths/silversmiths shaped and forge metal during the pre-revolutionary war era.  Students hand hammered aluminum to add decorative patterns.
