Last month we had the privilege of hosting the Stelzl family. One of the days they were here it rained so we all took a trip to school–A one room school house that is. It was fascinating to see the differences between present day schools and old fashioned schools. Here are ten differences we observed . . .
2. Chalk slates vs paper.
3. Older helped younger.
4. Encouraged to read Christian books.
5. Wooden toys vs plastic.
6. Students expected to quote scripture.
7. Heated by a wood stove.
8. Dressed appropriately.
9. Children brought their own lunch or sometimes went home for lunch. 10. Children walked / rode horses to school.
We all enjoyed the field trip very much. This was only part of a very encouraging time with the Stelzls.
