This week we found some joy on a field trip to an Old Florida Museum with our home school group. There were guided tours with hands on activities to demonstrate how things were done many years ago.I’m not sure what this is, but my son loved it!
Our tour guides dressed the part to fit the era:
This was the archeological dig:
You filled the bucket, then strained it to see the artifacts:
Here we are in the teepee, learning about the early Indians:
This was his favorite activity ‘throw the corncob’ to help develop good hunting aim:
Sitting in the old schoolroom:
Not sure what purpose this had in the old days:
But it was a great field trip to learn to appreciate the days of old. Even a little traffic jam on the way home didn’t dampen our joy!
