Busy at Home

group of young children gathered around a table in the pioneer cabin


The work of pioneer life becomes real for students as they fetch water in wooden buckets, wash clothes on a scrub board and dip a candle by hand from wax melted over an open fire.  Spending time in the log cabin allows students to see first-hand many of the objects they are learning about in studying settler life.

This is an excellent active living learning program, with many outdoor chores.
