When the school
bell rings today, students step back in time to experience a
1900's school. Reading, writing and arithmetic are taught.
Students write on slate boards and learn school rules and
punishments. The favorite activities of the day are recess,
seesawing, and eating a sack lunch under the broad ancient oak
begins with learning about chores of yesteryears, pumping water,
and looking inside an outhouse replica.
The day ends with
girls making a corn shuck doll and the boys making a spinner
button toy as a keepsake for their hands-on-journey in history.
this hands on history lesson have been elementary students from
public and private schools, future teachers' club, parents and a
group of college graduation students from a local university.
