Second Grade Students Experience a Day as Pioneer Children
Second Grade Students Experience a Day as Pioneer Children

The second grade class walked in the shoes of pioneer children this week. They came to school dressed like pioneers and experienced a day filled with pioneer activities that helped them learn about life in the 1800s. Mrs. Pappa shared some family history of her pioneer ancestors who relocated to California. She even brought in a full-sized wagon wheel that was from that time.

Students sang songs from the pioneer times and square danced, they participated in pioneer arts and crafts, churned their own butter, and had a pioneer style lunch that did not include modern materials or processed food. Not only was it a day of learning, but it was also a fun-filled day that will be very memorable to the second grade students.
