Here they are ready to go. Everyone was supposed to "dress the part" and take their lunch in lunchpails with wax paper wrapped sandwiches.
Each child was assigned a desk and given "real" schoolwork to do, just like they would have had 100 years ago.
Here is the teacher at the front of the classroom.
And here is Rachel's class doing some oral recitation work from the lesson books.
This outing certainly has helped the Laura books to come alive for the children and I can't wait to do more of these kinds of adventures in future years.
