One Room Middle School?

November 5, 2008

Last week, 8th grade students had the opportunity to visit the Weber-Blaess Schoolhouse and actively learn about colonial traditions.  Mr. Kurt Roy-Borland coordinated the visits for each team during their Social Studies time.  Each class spent two days visiting with the first day being an introduction to education in early America and the comparision to the Weber Blaess era of late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  The students returned the following day and  made candles, used fruit ink and feathers to write, made schoolyard toys out of corn, and spun wool into yarn.  This entire experience will be continued in February 2009 when the classes return to continue their learning about the settlers of early America.
