Parkerville school house

Tim's class had their second grade field trip last week. They have been learning all year about kids from about 100 years ago... so thinking about it now, about the time when my Granddad would have been a kid.

They learned about what kinds of toys they played with, clothes they wore, chores they had to do, and what school would have been like. Then they visited an old 1 room school house, they had to dress as kids back then would have, carry their lunches in pails, use slates, and horn books. Here is a picture of Tim's class... Tim is the second boy from the left... not sure if he was still upset that I made him bring his lunch in a pail and not in a bandana hung on a hobo stick...
