The Ohio Pioneer Experience

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_column_text]Live the history of Ohio during the 1800s! 

Hands-on activities throughout the day will give the students a sense of farm life for Ohio pioneers as they work with our staff at multiple stations. Students will use authentic 19th-century tools, including corn shellers, wheat grinders, and washtubs. They will also discover Ohio’s Native American influence through the story of “The Three Sisters”, grinding corn, and hiking through the woods to find Indian symbols. As a special treat, students will make their own butter!

As with all staff-led field trips, we will visit with our calm, friendly livestock as we discuss their importance to the survival of the pioneers and their importance in our lives today. We will also taste, touch, and smell the vegetables in our gardens as we again compare the gardens of the 1800s with gardens today.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_column_text]Cost: $8 per student and for chaperones. Teacher admission is always complimentary!
