Home School Program

Students will learn how pioneers would have lived off the land and most importantly recycled, reused and repurposed many items. From family economics to seasonal awareness, students will take a special ‘fabric swatch tour’ of the Museum using a small piece of fabric as a ‘clue tool’ to look for how things were reused in the home.
