Apples

Students visit the log cabin, where they learn about the many uses settlers had for their apple harvest.  Each student has the opportunity to create a dried apple wreath to take home.

In the Victorian cottage, active learning activities include using a reproduction late-1800’s apple peeler and playing the apple peel game.  The freshly peeled apples are used to make apple crisp to bake in the wood stove.  A sample of the results is always a highlight.

 

Childhood Memories

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.
