Teachers and members of the community Friday showed fifth-grade students at Westwood Elementary School oft-forgotten mountain skills like how to fry apple pies, wash cloths on a wash board, design a quilt, play marbles and antique-styled toys and even how to dowse for water. Pictured, fifth grade teacher Kim Davis shows a group old homemaking items; fifth grader Diana Naranjo makes a hand-powered propeller toy soar and Jalen Shelton cooks apple pies with his group. Staff photos by John Coffelt.
