A Trip Back in Time

As part of their studies on the Civil War and Industrial Revolution, seventh-graders participated in an educational field trip to the Old Bethpage Restoration Village on May 14.

While visiting the historical site, students had the opportunity to experience life on Long Island in the 1800s. They toured a one-room schoolhouse, general store, potter’s shop and blacksmith’s shop. They also visited a working 19th century farm and farmhouse, where they watched sheep shearing and yarn-making demonstrations.
