Pioneer Life

Students use primary and secondary sources including: letters, photographs, and maps. They will also handle authentic and reproduction artifacts; and engage in a variety of hands-on activities representative of Ohio’s early pioneers. Following a brief orientation presentation, including a discussion on how historians study the past, the student will break into groups and move between six stations where they will learn about topics ranging from food preparation to clothing, and from chore and school to games and toys. Following the program, students will complete the cultural practices and products of the pioneers with those of today or with other groups they know about that settled in Ohio over time.
