Pioneer Days Field Trip
We went on an awesome field trip to the Nature Center where we got to go into the woods and visit the log cabin and barn. We all loved the fact that we got to dress like a pioneer..
We had a fantastic time! We got to make cookies and play with old fashioned dolls. One of them was creepy because it's head was made out of a dried apples. We also got to use a pump to get water from the well. We dipped candles by hand by dipping the strings in hot wax. We made cookies that cooked in an old fashioned stove.
Then we went to the barn and used tools like an old fashioned saw, a sharpening wheel, a hole tool, and a peg maker. We even used an old tool that made it easy to carry a heavy log around the barn! When you are using the saw someone else has to sit down on the log so it doesn’t move and then 2 people pull back and forth to saw. After we used the tools we even got to play a little bit on the rope swing! It was a great field trip!
