Our Summer at the Schoolhouse program is for students who have finished first grade through sixth grade. We meet from 9:00 am until 12:30 pm, Monday through Friday, for one week.
What do we do? We get to see what school was like 100 years ago. We do reading, writing, and arithmetic, but we also do lots of recess! We write on slates, sing old songs (quite a few about Iowa), learn fun games, and make some creative crafts.
This year, we will explore the history and science of fire and firefighting. We will visit to the Historical Society’s exhibit about the history of Cedar Falls Fire Rescue, make crafts, and do some cool science experiments.
Each Friday, we will host parents, family, and guests at 11:00 am to show them what we’ve learned—and to serve them the ice cream we’ll make on Thursday. It’s always a grand finale to a wonderful week of summer!
Sessions are $60.00 per child for nonmembers and $55.00 per child for Historical Society members. They are filled on a first come, first served basis.
