The Star of the Republic Museum and Barrington Living History Farm are pleased to present a program specifically for home school families.
Every Thursday in October, the staff at the museum and the farm will present Childhood in Early Texas, an interactive, hands-on program for the entire family. Discover what life was like for a child in the mid-19th century during a visit to this historic site. In the museum, learn about childhood chores, clothes, and schools, and then make some old-fashioned toys to take home. Take a break with a picnic lunch in the pecan grove along the Brazos River. At Barrington Farm, experience life on an early Texas farm, complete with a stroll through the cotton field, picking a boll or two along the way.
Curriculum materials including lesson plans and activity sheets will be available online to help continue the learning experience at home.
