At the Western Heritage Center...
...Your kids can really grind corn, wheat and oats into grain and flour
...they can learn about native tree barks, local wood types and how the make shake roofs!
...they can handle / touch different ores and minerals
...they will learn to identify bird nests, eggs and wetland habitats
...they can watch drive belts turning pulleys that turn pulleys,
that turn more pulleys, and finally drill a piece of wood!
...they can operate a
computer to make a corn sheller (??) make a drag saw work (??), or to operate a
grain cleaner (??)
...they can watch a real water wheel being powered by water (imagine that!)
...participate in making rope...
In other words, lots of unique and creative fun that teaches about the past as they learn!
