According to one of the teachers, the students eagerly asked questions and “were amazed at how so much can change over time (clothing, housing, technology, trades), as well as intrigued to see that some things remain the same (education, games, work ethic).”
The students’ favorite part was visiting the old schoolhouse and hearing from an actor portraying a very strict school master. Let’s hope they learned some lessons to take back to the classroom!
The visit to Historic Cold Springs Village was made possible with a grant from Field Trip New Jersey, an endowment launched by the Community Foundation of New Jersey and Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation to take students into new places that have the power to awaken, hush, awe, enrich, or otherwise positively change their lives.
