Kasson-Mantorville Elementary School first grade students spent Wednesday morning, May 28 at the Dodge County Historical Society Museum getting a sampling of what life was like shortly after Dodge County was settled in the late 1800s. Seven stations were set up around the museum campus with volunteers at each giving students a living history lesson by demonstrating some facet of life in that period. The seven stations were:

• Games

• Washing clothes

• Ironing and caring for clothes

• Making butter

• One-room school house

• Red house

• Museum building

All 140 students had an opportunity to experience each of the seven stations as they rotated from station-to-station as each demonstration was completed. Afterward, K-M first grade teacher Heidi Diercks said the students enjoyed the museum visit. "The kids said this was the best day ever," Diercks said. "They really enjoyed the butter making and tasting it when we got back to school.

"Of course, the boys thought the sword in the museum was really cool. They all wanted to help with the clothes washing and found that very interesting as well. They said it was pretty hard to turn the crank, and it would be a lot of work to wash clothes.

"They also said they wouldn't want to have to iron clothes, as it looked like a lot of work!"
