What's Happening in 2nd grade?!
Second graders have been busy learning all about the pioneers and early days of Parker during their first social studies history unit. As a culminating activity, the second graders went on a field trip to the Four Mile Historic Park. While there, students had an opportunity to do pioneer chores that included getting water from a well, washing clothes, feeding the chickens, and cleaning rugs. They also helped to make delicious cornbread and then had a chance during lunch to sample it. Panning for gold, Native American games, and pioneer games were also part of the fun day! Additionally, students spent time in the pioneer school and learned that school was much different in the 1800s. Special thanks to all of our volunteers, who helped to make this day possible! Everyone enjoyed the field trip!
