    On Friday, October 13 the Nemaha Central fifth graders went on a field trip to the Stach School located in Topeka, Kansas. The fifth graders got to take a tour of the one room schoolhouse and experience life as a student in the 1920's. Students got to act as the scholars and got to sit at wooden desks, practice their penmanship using pen and ink, participate in a spelling bee, and play a 1920's recess game. If the students wanted they could dress up as a schoolgirl/schoolboy in this era.

    The students were informed on what was expected of them and were given some background information in a keynote presentation by the teachers before they left on the field trip. Upon arriving to the Stach School, students were met by the costumed school teacher in the museum lobby awaiting their schoolhouse journey. The costumed teacher then lead all of the school activities. The students were told to bring their lunches. The fifth graders got back at NCEMS approximately at 2:45 in the afternoon from their trip to the Stach School.

    “My favorite part was recess and the teacher was very mean but it was very realistic to the 1920’s,” said Hallie Holthaus.

    Landon Nolte said, “My favorite part was when the teacher slapped the ruler on the table because it was funny.”

    “They had a unique experience. It was cool to watch them write and practice their penmanship and play games from the 1920's,” said 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Heather Sullivan.
