Third graders at Mars Hill Academy went back in time after reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie.
As part of their study, the students recently participated in a Prairie Day celebration. They dressed up in period costumes and visited a frontier cabin at West Chester Township’s Keehner Park.

“Prairie Day is one of our students’ favorite days of the year,” said third grade teacher Traci DeBra. “We immerse them in the period and let their imaginations run with hands-on crafts, activities, music and authentic food.”
The students participated in bread and butter making, played 19th century games, did crafts, and saw a replica prairie school room.
