A year's worth of history, music, and art concluded with the Providence Pioneer Day for Class Two students on April 2 as parents brought to life the American experience of the nineteenth century. These Living History Days are the culmination of a year’s worth of learning history in that particular grade.
The day started out with the Trail Bosses (dads) rounding up all the Class Two students, gathering them in their classrooms, and taking them to Pioneer Day. The Class Two Trailblazers met up with their Mother Hens and began singing Pioneer songs that they had been learning with Mrs. Barbara Leeman in their music classes.
After the students sang, they made their way to Pioneer stations which included panning for gold, shaving their faces, washing clothes on a washboard, using pasta noodles to make jewelry, playing Pioneer games, and even riding an old horse-led wagon like the Pioneers did. The exciting Pioneer Day ended with a picnic lunch.
