Pioneer Day

On October 8th, 2015, Fourth Graders were able to experience the daily chores and lives of pioneers in Nebraska. It was a beautiful fall day as we traveled to Filley Stone Barn and Homestead National Park.

Students enjoyed activities such as corn shucking, corn shelling, digging fence post holes, sawing wood, sewing quilt blocks, candle making, and pioneer toys.  They also watched demonstrations of blacksmithing and marble making.

Students learned an appreciation of the pioneers and what they accomplished to make our lives much easier today.
