Shelburne Farms Field Trip #resvt

On Tuesday, second graders travelled back in time to the 1800's with help from the staff at Shelburne Farms! In connection with our "Founding Families" unit, students saw a skit where two different bedrooms were described. One bedroom was from the present times, while the other bedroom was from the 1800's. Students also participated in candle making, carting wool, making butter, grinding corn, and helping with the daily farm animal chores. This field trip made Pilgrim lives more realistic to our second graders! Thank you to all the chaperones and excellent staff at Shelburne Farms for helping our day run smoothly!
