Homeschoolers Link to the Past

Posted on Oct 11 2012 in Events by admin

During Fall Homeschool Day at the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton, Virginia, hundreds of homeschoolers learned about the different cultures that made up America in the early days of our nation. From a West African farm, to an English farm, to an Irish forge and cottage–students learned what it would be like to raise a family and live during these difficult times. Many artisans demonstrated how to trap animals for food and tan animal skins for clothing, how to spin and dye yarn, how to saw logs and build a log home, and how to cook meals over an open fire. Students could even write on a slate in an early American one-room schoolhouse!
