Children learn about history by experiencing it first-hand

I’ve always believed that the best way to learn to is get hip-deep, physically and intellectually, into a subject. A recent program hosted by the Webster Museum is an excellent example.

Earlier this week, several young history buffs got a chance to experience a day in the life of Webster colonial families as part of the museum’s “Morning at the Museum” program.

Participants rotated through several stations at the museum, giving them hands-on opportunities to make butter, dig for fossils, create ornaments, play with colonial toys, weave, write in diaries, stencil bags and learn about architecture. Museum volunteers hosted the day.

Here are some photos from what was an enjoyable day for both children and adults:
