At Work & At Play

What important work did children do long ago to help their farms and households run smoothly? When they weren’t doing chores, what did children do for fun? Students will discover answers to these questions by exploring the museum’s 1794 Williamson-Ploch Barn, examining artifacts, and engaging in hands-on learning activities. Students will also be introduced to the importance of farming culture and how wheat is an essential crop for our day-to-day lives both today and in the past.
