What was it like to attend
classes in a one-room school? Children ages 8 to 12 can find out by
enrolling in a special workshop at the historic 1839 Waterford
Schoolhouse on the grounds of Dickson Mounds Museum, Havana.
"A Day in a One-Room School" will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July
The workshop, presented by the museum's
education staff, will simulate classes in reading, writing and
arithmetic, along with games.
Cost for the
day is $10 per child, and each student must bring a sack lunch.
Preregistration is required. To register, call Kim at (309)
