The difference between the olden days and now

Clip to ScrapBook #1

My class of year 2/3 are doing the theme the Olden DAys. We are going to visit a house that is set up as it was in 1890. The children get to wash, iron make scones etc the old way. I wonder if anyone has any other ideas. We are looking at the difference between olden day telephones and the ones today. Just if anyone knows of websites etc. I do have an interactive whiteboard. Thank you

If you contact the telephone company, they might have some old pictures or phones for you use or see.

contact the local tv station, I am sure they would love to talk to the children. The same is true for the raido station.

Apple Valley School

Each Spring our second grades participate in the Apple Valley School simulation. It focuses on school life in the late 1800's. The site is below:

Also, we bake bread from scratch each November a few days before Thanksgiving. The children make the wheat bread to take home to share with their families for Thanksgiving. Our Ohio State Educational Specialist from our county office helps us make the bread. We have done this for many, many years. Mmmm, I can smell it baking already.


Peace,
OhioTeach

Field trip maybe ?

Just imagine what stories people in a retirement home might have to share... Especially if you have arranged it all in advance, and the staff have given the residents a chance to think about what experiences they would like to share ( and have selected residents who are up to it... ) It would be a wonderful breath of youthful fresh air for the residents as well as a great learning experience for the kids.

Or if a field trip isn't an option, maybe you could bring in some elderly guest speakers.
