Back in the day... a fun history lesson!

The kids are really having fun with this one! I'm sure it helps that it's my favorite period to study in American History.
We are "rowing" (our curriculum is called "Five In A Row") a book called "When I Was Young In The Mountains."
To go along with that story, and really bring it to life, we visited the Troy Historical Museum this morning.

Our friends that we don't get to see much during the school year were able to come along and share in the experience!
We have gone in the past, but at that time we were relating it to the "Little House" series. It was a neat concept to realize that these 2 stories could have been going on at the same time in history!
We took note of all the things we have now that were not available back then.
The kids were very aware and did a great job coming up with comparison lists!
After the museum we went home and had cornmuffins and home-made butter! Again, the adults may have been a little more excited about this, but it's good for the children to see parents that love to learn, too!
