What a great program! We were thrilled that our favorite of the Hamilton County naturalists, Trina, led the program for us. We learned about the Ohio landscape in the 1700's, a bit about how the Native American's lived, about farming in pioneer times, and about Native American and Pioneer games. The program was very hands on, the kids got to touch everything, and we played a could of games. Once the program concluded, there was time to play with everything and the kids had a great time. Cade's favorite thing was the drum, but he just couldn't get the concept that he needed to bang on it gently!
