Third grade classes gather in 4-H Building in Forestburg

On Monday, May 7, the Sanborn County 4-H building became the frontier as boys in cowboy hats and cowboy boots and girls in bonnets and long dresses relived some of the things early settlers did.  The third grade classes from Sanborn Central and Woonsocket, along with the third graders from Parkston met pen pals they had been writing throughout the school year.  The teachers, Mrs. Ogle and Mrs. Malloy, dressed the part of the country school teacher.

Some of the activities they shared were making homemade ice cream by rolling the ingredients in two cans, the outside one filled with ice. They also made corn husk dolls and played hoop games. They shared their journals about monuments along the Oregon Trail.

A total of 43 students and several helpers brought a little of the Old West to Forestburg.
