First Day of Prairie School


For our first day of school we decided to go check out an old settlement from the 1800’s. Since we are using the Prairie Primer  ( ,  we thought this would be a great opportunity to be immersed in that time period. 

 We visited a church/school,

a log cabin,

a creek where we threw rocks, 

and an old mill.

At the mill we looked at different grains that they would grind. We were also able to feel the texture. It is a very different texture from how our grains are ground today.

We also saw a wagon.

And we even had a black bear run out in front of us!!!!

We made some great memories. Memories that I hope the boys will recall as we read all the Little House on the Prairie books this year.
