Third graders to experience 1800s school days

The Westwood Historical Society will again give every Westwood third-grader the experience of an 1800s school day. Charles Donahue will again oversee this special program in May. As in the past, the Fisher School will be transformed into a historic classroom with antique school desks and chairs, plus a dunce cap and stool.

Every Westwood third-grade class has the opportunity to participate in an 1800s school day. Students dress in period clothing and bring an old-fashioned lunch (no plastic wrap allowed). During the day, they step back in time to read from McGuffey’s Third Reader, use individual slates to complete problems from Warren Colburn’s 1847 arithmetic book, write with quill pens and ink, participate in a spelling bee, and play old-fashioned games.
