This one is for you Michelle! Western Day is always a fun...long day at Berry Shoals. All 3 halls of 5th graders are involved in activities that would have occured back in the olden days of Western Expansion. We all dress up & hope the kids do too. We have them participate in the process of corn going from the husk to corn meal, learn how to square dance, listen to a true bluegrass band, see real archives from the day, make butter, eat some western snacks (beef jerky and apple juice), took pictures,worked on quilts, played old timey games and watch Pecos Bill. I believe it's a day us teachers look forward to as much as the kids do! Watch for pictures from our journey through Ellis Island soon!!
