Day of Learning
Landmark 1 (Explore Together Weekly)
During our dairy educator visit students learned the reason why many of the barns years ago were painted red were because the farmers used sumac berries to create a stain to put on the barns to protect the wood. Students were inspired to go out into the forest and pick some sumac berries and brought them back to the class and created some of their very own paint stain! They used the stain to paint their very own barns, just like the farmers would of done. A fantastic day of learning!
