Eidem Homestead

We had a great time at the Eidem Homestead this week.  Thank you to our three parent volunteers who braved the chilly weather with us as we learned what everyday life was like in the early 20th century.

Pumping water

Imagining life only by kerosene lamp--We learned that the kitchen was a favorite gathering place since it was the only warm room in the house!

How children took their Saturday night baths before Sunday church--a cold metal tub--brrrrr!

Time to feed the animals a favorite treat, corn.

The farm's rooster named Pretty Boy!

Next week we will create a class story about a day in the life of a homestead kindergartner using the ipad app My Story.  We will create a collective story and each child will then work with a buddy to design, illustrate and write a page of the tale.  You can look for the finished product in the next few weeks!
