4th Graders Celebrate Pioneer Days


The Sterling 4th Grade ventured to Homestead National Monument of America and Filley Stone Barn on Thursday, October 2nd to participate in Pioneer Days with the area 4th graders.  A rainy morning brought about altered plans for the activities at the Homestead National Monument. Some of the activities that the 4th graders were able to learn about and participate in were: spinning, quilting, pioneer toys, clothes washing, and learning about animals on the prairie. From Beatrice, we departed to the Filley Stone Barn. The afternoon was filled with exploring the inside of the Filley Stone Barn, learning about blacksmiths, playing the string game called ‘cat’s cradle,’ and watching how marbles are made. This field trip was an introduction to what we will be learning about in the near future while studying Nebraska this year!
