The Orchard School "Culture Days"

Fourth-graders at The Orchard School dive deep into their study of diverse cultures of early Indiana. Rather than sitting in a classroom, watching a video, and filling out a worksheet, we take our students outside on our 43-acre wooded campus. “Culture Days” is a three day event full of hands-on experiences where students are truly working like pioneers. From making food over a fire to sawing their own logs, and from dressing like early cultures and using a real canoe (true to time period size) as shelter, students are given an “Only at Orchard” excellent experience.

Does your school do something similar?
