Book - 2003
Rate this:
What were schools like on the American frontier between 1840 and 1900? Readers will learn that children on the frontier sometimes attended school in a wagon, in a sod house, or in a deserted dugout, if they went to school at all. Getting to school was not easy on the frontier, and finding teachers was even harder. Period photographs will help students envision what life in a one-room schoolhouse was really like.
