MORE INFO: Visit this page on the Conner Prairie website for more info on this event. Can’t make it to these days, but want to coordinate a field trip for your homeschool group? I have info for you on that right here.
I don’t know about you, but my kids tend to get more out of a field trip if we do a little bit of advance learning and preparation on the topic. So ahead of our trip to Conner Prairie, I will read some books and we might do a craft. Here are some ideas, first straight from the Conner Prairie website:
- 1836 Prairietown activities from the Conner Prairie website
- 1863 Civil War journey activities
- Conner Homestead activity packet and video
- Lenape Camp activities and info
- Visit the “Learn and Do” tab on the Conner Prairie site for more
Please note, I haven’t vetted most of these resources. I’m just listing them as a springboard for your library visit ahead of time, if you choose to do so.
Do you have any book suggestions or resources to add? I’d love to hear them!
