Recommended Reads: School Stories To Experience History

What was it like to be a student in a small, one-room schoolhouse, where students of all ages learned together under the direction of a single teacher? We've curated a list of recommended fiction and non-fiction for you to read all about it.

Want to take it a step further to create a more hands-on experience? Check out our Experience History: Old School kit! With the candle, slate, chalk, and McGuffey Primer included in the kit, you can act out an old-fashioned school day - the perfect activity for a cozy weekend at home.
