This past Thursday, the Landis Valley Farm Museum came to Conestoga to present its “Traveling Trunk” presentation to the fifth grade class. There were six different stations that the students rotated through – archaeology, wool combing, quill penmanship, scherenschnitte (paper cutting), weaving, and fire starting. The students had the opportunity for hands-on learning that incorporated the curriculum from the thirteen colony unit in social studies. A HUGE thank you to the PTO for sponsoring this event for the fifth grade!
Your child should have brought home his/her scherenschnitte creation, penmanship sample, and a sample of the wool combing on! It was an interesting and fun-filled afternoon!
