Pioneer Children - Grade Two

On this journey into the past, students will make and taste their own butter, experience daily chores, touch a variety of early tools and household items, learn their uses, and be delightfully disgusted by the “Thunder mug.”

They will sample games which entertained pioneer children and make a button buzzer of their own. The economic concepts of specialization and interdependence, opportunity costs, wants and needs are also explored.

Weather permitting; a mural on the north face of our building will be used to demonstrate the chronology of local events and changes in Newaygo County over time.
