2. Kindergarten - First Grade
3. Compare and contrast the way of life in Pioneer history and today
The objective of this Vitrual Tour is to take kindergarten and
first grade students to Spring Mill State Park to observe the way of
life during pioneer times by touring through the Pioneer Village.
5. Social Studies standards: K.1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2
Our Virtual Tour gives young students a way to see how the way of
living has changed since pioneer days. The students will be able
to look at pictures showing an old mill, doctor's office, and pioneer
housing. The students will then be able to discuss their findings
with the teachers and other adults around them.
We chose Spring Mill State Park becuase it has a real Pioneer
village. It is located in Mitchell, IN and was not too far of a
drive to visit.
Once the students finish the virtual tour of Spring Mill State
Park Pioneer Village, the class with regroup and there will be a
teacher led discussion involving all of the students. The
discussion will involve comparing and contrasting the way of life then
and now. After a group discussion, the students will be sent back
to their seats and they are to write a journal about their favorite
part of the virtual tour and draw a picture to represent it.
