Pioneer Day

1PioneersTurning back the hands of time. Fourth graders researched the life of an early Nebraskan and portrayed that person during "Pioneer Day". Each "pioneer" introduced themselves to the class; "proved up" their homestead; washed their hands with goat milk soap and prepared and ate a pioneer style lunch. One of the highlights of the day was to play some pioneer relay races where they had to gather real eggs, churn butter, cut sod, plow and plant seeds and wash clothes on a wash board before turning forward the hands of time and becoming 4th graders with a deeper understanding of the hardships of pioneers and a stronger appreciation of the conveniences of today's world in which they live.
