MCES Discovery Class visits Landmark Park

MCES Discovery Class MCES Discovery Class The MCES Discovery classes recently enjoyed a field trip to Landmark Park in Dothan, Alabama.

Accompanying them on the trip, along with their instructor, Mrs. Becky LaGuardia were several parents and grandparents.

Here, the students experienced an 1800s Christmas with fireside stories and hot cider to sip.

The students then participated in singing Christmas carols and experienced the one-room school where they learned how school in the 1800s was conducted.

Next, they made an ornament typical of the 1800s to take home.

Most importantly, the students learned how children worked hard at home and on the family farm. School was a privilege. not to be taken lightly, and the children knew if they got into trouble at school, they would be in worse trouble when they got home to Mama and Daddy. It was a great learning experience for all.
