Mission Mill

Last week we visited the Mission Mill Museum. The kids had so much fun. We prepared quite a bit for our trip before going. We read The Bobbin Girl and did our whole curriculum around the story. It was amazing. There were so many new vocabulary to learn. There were so many things to learn about mills and making wool. One of our students has sheep and brought in some wool and cards. We learned to card the wool. What fun! We also checked out the Library Bag that has stories, a puppet and a free pass to the Mission Mill Museum. What a wonderful couple of weeks getting ready. The Mill did not disappoint and we were even blessed with a clear day. After the field trip we came back and finished our little nut shepherds. The kids played with them all afternoon.
