Fourth Grade Field Trip to Filley Stone Barn

The Freeman Fourth Graders enjoyed a fun filled fall field trip to the Filley Stone Barn, and Homestead National Monument in early October. The students spent half of the day at the Filley Stone Barn, learning the history behind the building and rotating through various stations. Each station included an activity that would reflect life on a farm during pioneer times.Students sawed wood, picked and shelled corn, watched marbles being made, observed a blacksmith and took a hayrack ride. Even though the weather didn’t exactly cooperate, the students made the best of it! After a quick bite to eat on the bus, it was on to the Homestead National Monument. Students once again rotated through stations to explore and learn about pioneer life. Activities included sewing, spinning thread, washing clothes and making pioneer toys...just to name a few! This fun and educational day is always a hit for our fourth grade students. It truly helps them to gain a better understanding of the way life was during pioneer times, and how differently we live now compared to back then.
