Childhood Memories

Group of pioneer costumed children gathered on the green grass eating lunch

Make a pioneer toy to take home...
Play Victorian parlour games...
Try on a pioneer costume...
Roll a hoop, write on a slate...

This is an activity-based program your students will long remember.  Visits are made to the log cabin and Victorian cottage where students learn about children's lives during each time period, including playing some games of the day.  Students attend the one-room school to learn proper 19th century behaviour and to try a lesson on a slate.
