Students receive blast from past

It was a throwback to a simpler time when Moreland Hills Elementary School second-graders, both in person and virtually, celebrated “Pioneer Day” earlier this month.

The return to the past is intended to help second-graders move into the future by guiding the students to better understand technology and appreciate the modern conveniences they have. Teachers created this collaborative experience with their month-long study of the pioneers, their communication methods, their jobs and transportation and their daily lives. The hands-on, annual event engaged students in activities including basket weaving, tin punching and whirligig creations.
