Experience what school was like in 1913!

One room schoolhouses were the norm in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Grades one through eight were taught together by a single teacher with the oldest students sitting in the back and the younger students in front. Schoolhouses were heated by a single wood stove and students made do with just chalk and a slate.  They did not have erasers, pens, notebooks, or any of the fancy school supplies that are used today.
