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.

Have you ever wondered what going to school was like in the olden days? Maybe you've read about Laura Ingalls Wilder heading off to school for the first time in On The Banks of Plum Creek. Or, maybe you've visited the Canton Historical Museum and wondered what it was like to attend a one-room school.
Now, you can bring that era to life with the Experience History: Old School kit. Each kit contains a slate, chalk, candle, a McGuffey Reader, and a nonfiction book comparing school days past and present.
Check out an Experience History: Old School kit today and transport yourself back in time!
