Last week, the kids and I took a field trip to the Log Cabin Village in Fort Worth.
A few months ago, we joined a little homeschool co-op of sorts. Each month we meet with 4 other (large) families and each child shares something they have learned in their school time that month. When everyone has shared, we do a little song time, play time (think recess) and lunch together. It has been awesome!!! It was this group that got together to do the field trip.
The village was so neat! The kids were able to try on clothes from that time period (1800's):
See what it was like to pump water from a well:
Watch a black smith make a nail:
Experience a one-room school house - complete with punishment:
And more including seeing how a mill works, and how they go from a fiber to string, to cloth, to clothes! It was a great learning experience and so fun!!!
