Our trip to Old Fort Western was a memorable one. Our first graders had the opportunity to learn about what life would have been like for them long ago. We learned how to start a fire with flint and charcloth, cut and split kindling wood, play games, make hot cocoa, grind cinnamon and sugar with a mortar and pestle, card and spin wool, and make a bed! A fun time was had by all. When we returned to school we decided we enjoy our modern conveniences like indoor plumbing and electricity!
