Special Event: Living History
At: Thomas Paine Cottage Museum
20 Sicard Avenue, New Rochelle, NY 10804
Time: Sunday, June 10, 2012 10 to 5PM
Subject: “One-Room Schoolhouse Days”
A repeat of our highly successful hands-on and interactive program for children and adults. A costumed ‘school-marm’ will lead students through an abridged, but typical school day of the 19th century. Students of all ages can compare a class using slate boards and chalk, dunce-caps and 19th century schoolbooks of yesteryear with class as they experience today. Period diplomas will be issued to all, and then recess will be called. Don’t forget to bring an apple for extra credit!
