This 4-hour tour is suggested for 2nd grade and up. Children will spend 2 hours in the One Room School with a costumed school marm, doing 1900-era schoolwork using lesson books the children can keep, as well as using our slates and chalk, while sitting at the old-fashioned desks. Recess to play an old-fashioned game is also part of the school day. Children continue their trip back in time with a costumed guide visiting 7 or 8 selected buildings in the village, learning about their history and use in 1900. You bring your own brown bag lunch to have a picnic between the tour and school time, and we serve up a hand-dipped ice cream cone for dessert.

This program can accommodate up to two classes (minimum 10 students, max 50 total) per day. The cost is $7 per person with no charge for 2 school staff (teacher, aide, para, etc.) per class. Additional adults are $7 each. Contact Dakota City at 651-460-8050 x 3 or education@dakotacity.org to schedule your tour.
