Junior Scholastic (1961)
Weekly Reader and Junior Scholastic were two mainstays in my elementary school days. These were weekly "newspapers" printed for school use. They would be used to teach current events or to add to a science or social studies unit. For those of us in school they felt like a break in the school day. They had a couple of news stories, some jokes, even a cartoon. While most people did not keep them, I occasionally find a few on Ebay about space flight.
Fall is in the air where I live and school and space seem to go together like hot chocolate and ghost stories.
