 What is something that you remember doing in elementary school that your kid(s) do not do?

I remember getting 3 recesses a day, except on P.E. days- we got 2 then. My kids have only ever gotten 1 recess a day : (

Ooh! And scavenger hunts through out the school for kids who earned it. If you unscrambled all the letters to make the location, you would go to the location and find a treasure box full of things like money, costume jewelry, candy, Ect.

Walk/run! We had to either walk or run a 3/4mile loop everyday to get from lunch to recess. It wasn't that the playground was that far away, they just required us to get some exercise!

We had "break" every day with a snack and milk from the cafeteria. My kids get lunch and that's it. Also, we had swim lessons starting in 2nd grade up through 6th grade for 2 weeks every year.

I can think of tons of things my school does now that the school attended as a child did not.

One thing I remember from school that we don't do now is assemblies. I remember having lots of assemblies and sitting on the gym floor for them.
