A Real History Lesson

History1FAThe fourth through sixth graders found out the L-O-N-G drive to Homestead National Monument was nothing compared to the incredible hardships and challenges faced by those that made the journey west in search of a new life and land to call their own. Thanks to a National Park Service (NPS) grant, our students had the opportunity to explore the Heritage Visitor Center and the Educational Center as well as the open prairie in order to get just a little taste of what life as a homesteader would have been like. It was also an important time to stop and consider the Homestead Act from another perspective; that of the Native Americans whose lives were forever changed. The NPS staff did a fabulous job of rotating the kids through different activities designed to help them more deeply understand the significance of the Homestead Act. THANKS NATIONAL PARK SERVICE! This was a wonderful example of our tax dollars at work! For more photos click here.
