Like a Pioneer
Pioneers worked and played and did many things that we do but they didn't have all of the things that help us to do them. Those things are the result of their ideas that they developed using engineering and technology skills.
Like a Pioneer teaches students to think like a pioneer through hands-on activities that involve Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
Students will break into five smaller groups. Each group will participate in 4 activities selected by the teacher when the reservation is place. They will also visit the Mahaska County Historical Society Museum to explore the many objects and photographs that tell the history of this area.
