Stuhr Museum Field Trip

In late September the third graders spent the afternoon at the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island.  The students learned about various types of transportation.  They started off the day learning what transportation is and the earliest forms of transportation.  As the tour continued they learned the importance of the steam train.  The next stop was the old town where they learned how important wheels, leaf springs, buggies, and wagons were to the early settlers.  At the end of the tour the students were able to ride on the hand cart and play an old time game of stick and hoop.  A great time was had by all!!
