PASCO, Wash. - Mark Twain Elementary School hosted its 19th Annual Frontier Days on Friday. The kids were 'herded' to different stations throughout the day where they learned about everything from old time chores to Native American culture.
It's a hands on history lesson and one student told NBC Right Now his favorite part was milking the cows.
"There's bottles right behind the cow and there's a bucket right under the things and then you squeeze them. You pull them down then you squeeze," said Jayden Davis.
"I think to physically experience that just deepens the experience for kids rather than just reading about it or watching a movie," said teacher Tracy Squires.
For the 20th annual Frontier Days next year the staff promises it's going to be bigger and better than ever.
