Our second grade students took a journey through time back to the prairie days with Mrs. Phillips.  Having just read Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie, they enjoyed activities like tilling soil, chopping wood, cooking over the open fire, quilting, whittling, and making homemade pies with lard crusts.  Girls in their bonnets and boys in their suspenders took part in a hard day’s work, yet discovered the joys of that hard work  just like the children did on the prairie.
