Schoolhouse Program

Station Activities

Howell Living History Farm’s schoolhouse program introduces students to education at the turn of the last century. Howell Farm’s living history approach draws students back to a time period when schools used traditional methods to educate Americans entering the twentieth century. Now in the twenty-first century, Howell Farm welcomes school groups to experience a typical schoolchild’s day in 1900 and to learn about the methods that taught Americans in the past.

Schoolhouse: Participate in a one room schoolhouse class period

Chores: Do farm chores

Recess: Play traditional games
