Third graders from Schickler Elementary School attended a one-room schoolhouse this past week to experience what learning was like in the 1800s. They spent most of the day in Stanley School at Crossroads Village in Genesee County. As part of this Michigan History unit, students made butter, chalk and dried apple rings. They also practiced tongue twisters and memory gems as well as proper etiquette of the era. Students are now working on a writing project that describes the experiences they had while pretending to be pioneer children in Michigan.
