Students had an opportunity to step back in history and enjoy games and activities from years gone by. Volunteers from the Heritage School in Sheboygan visited several summer school groups to share a glimpse of what life was like for children in the late 1800s. Students walked on stilts, made butter, and built wooden sailboats.

As part of the fourth grade curriculum, Sheboygan Area School District students take a field trip to Heritage School on the corner of 8th St. and Kentucky Ave. to experience a classroom from 1876. From its old flap-seated desks to a properly attired school marm prepared to hear the daily recitations of reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic, visitors will see an authentically restored and appointed 1876 two-room school house.

As schools throughout the Sheboygan Area School District develop goals such as improving literacy and providing students with real-world learning experiences, teachers are finding creative and inspiring ways to incorporate the goals into their classrooms. One of those teachers is Mr. Frank Juarez, an art teacher at North High School. Frank was inspired by his school’s goal to increase literacy and began to examine what literacy looked like in an art classroom. He also considered the access teachers and students have to contemporary artists, and wondered how students can experience artists’ real-world work environments.
