February 02, 2011 - Oxford Elementary fourth-graders took a trip back in time last week when they visited the Northeast Oakland Historical Museum.

Students learned all about how folks lived, dressed, worked and played back in the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was certainly an eye-opening experience for a generation that's never without its cell phones and iPods.
