Students from Horace Mann 5th grade experienced a living museum that featured recreations of The Roxy, Harlem streets, homes of the time, grocery stores, New York Yankees stadium, Woman's Temperance crusader, a back room speakeasy and live piano performances at the Cotton Club. Throughout the day students learned lessons about financial climate at the time and were given envelopes filled with money. At the end of the day, the students discovered how their money and investments did during the stock market crash of 1929.
