The third grade class invites you to take a step back in time! Third graders experienced life in the Victorian age as they toured the Kellogg House at the Orange County Heritage Museum. They learned about Victorian architecture, tried their hand at chores like the laundry and butter churning, tried on clothes, played with old-fashioned toys, learned about some big differences in schooling, discovered how a blacksmith made nails and brands, and explored many rooms of the house.
However, their learning didn’t stop there! In the weeks after our trip, students acted as tour guides through the house. They used the app Puppet Edu to create a movie with a partner. They utilized pictures of the museum and gave detailed information about what they learned. At the end of the movie, they invited their audience to visit the museum for themselves. You, too, can take a step back in time by watching their videos! What a fun way to end a field trip, and what wonderful planning and teamwork skills the students showed as they created their videos!
