Field Trip to Chippewa Nature Center
Our first field trip of the year was a success. The students traveled back in time and spentthe morning in a one room schoolhouse. They experienced new tools in the classroom,interesting recess activities, and even an outhouse! After lunch, we visited a pioneer homestead. We saw a cow, pigs, chickens, wild turkeys, and sheep. Old tools, the cellar,the home without electricity, and using the water pump were all experiences during thetrip. Information has been sent home if you and your family would like to visit!
