Jo Chambers: What's In Your Backpack?
Jo Chambers grew up in a whole different era. Scroll to see what this 1960s teenager brings to school every day:
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Jo’s favorite book! She keeps a copy with her always. Have you read it?
Being an avid reader, Jo keeps a notebook with her to jot down her thoughts and observations.
The first Yo-Yo was invented in Ancient Greece, but made a major comeback in 1962. Playing with it in between classes is how Jo keeps her mind off the drama!
Slide Top pencil case
In the 1960s, this vintage pencil case was considered state of the art and futuristic!
Before Instagram, kids and teens were entertained by tiny comic strips that came folded up inside gum wrappers!
In a post-war world, even pencils were patriotic!
Jo’s a serious reader, but sometimes she like something a little more lighthearted!
