Life on the Prairie


St. Mary's 4th and 8th graders spent the day experiencing the prairie firsthand at Homestead National Monument outside Beatrice, Nebraska. Their visit began at the longest running one room schoolhouse in Nebraska. They participated in daylong activities to assist them in their understanding of life on the Nebraska prairie from filing claims, doing daily chores to hiking 1.3 miles in the prairie land owned by Daniel Freeman, the first recorded homesteader in the United States. The highlight of the day was viewing the actual "Homestead Act" printed on animal skin signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862.
