As a history teacher, I also find myself using accessories in my classroom to portray various historical figures or people from different time periods! I scored that sweet top hat (which is very Lincoln-esque) at Goodwill for $1! My students have fun with it, even though they give me the 'she's lost it' look whenever I walk in with my tri-cornered hat and powdered wig!
What about you?
Any other fun uses for all those post-Halloween sales items?
