Students spend time in a turn-of-the-19th century farmhouse experiencing and learning about early Pioneer life. Activities include old fashioned hard work and kids' games.
Students are given an opportunity to work in both the barn and the garden areas. They will experience life on the farm, as did children 120 years ago. Students will grind corn, muck the stalls, make rope, and when the weather is good, work in the garden.
This program allows students to experience a day in a territorial schoolhouse. Students participate by using slates and reading from the McGuffey Reader. Playground games from the late 1800’s are an option for good weather days.
