Today has been a busy day at East Meadows!
Our 4th grade students earned "Beaver Pelts" for good behavior, participation, and being kind. They were then able to trade the "pelts" for goods. Each students brought some items they wanted to trade with others. They had a great time learning about the Mountain Men and how they lived and survived back in the day.
The 4th grade students have been studying about the Mountain Men that use to live in our area.
We were so lucky to have a "Mountain Man" come and visit the students today. He talked about how they traded furs for goods. The students loved learning about their ways.
Our 4th grade students had a great time at Camp Floyd in Fairfield.
They learned about the Pony Express, how to make candles and bricks. They were taught what it was like to have a military drill.
There was a Pioneer school house there and the students enjoyed seeing what it was like to attend school back in the day.
It was a beautiful day and the students had a great time! We have awesome students and staff at East Meadows!
