A picnic in Cedaredge Park celebrated the end of a two week study of pioneer days for fourth graders at Cedaredge Elementary School. From the left, in costumes: Zoe Wood, Kaleb Berardi, Katie Lindley, Ethan Bates, and one of the fourth grade teachers, Sheri McFadden, who took on the role of Miss Prouty.
This looks like a great way to help young people learn about customs, schooling, and social life of early settlers in the west. For two weeks, fourth grade students and their teachers at Cedaredge Elementary School have been simulating situations as if they were attending classes in a one room schoolhouse.
