To celebrate our state's birthday, we had a PIONEER DAY!
We dressed like Pioneers, and carried our books to school!
We used chalkboards (like early hornbooks) to do our work!
K, 1 and 2 grades rotated through classrooms, mapping out routes on trails (using corn kernels...)
panned for gold...
and sifted through rocks for gold!
Beware of "Fool's Gold" (gold tinsel)-it has no value!!!
We also square-danced in P.E., made quilts and sang songs! Happy Birhtday, KANSAS!
