Fourth graders at Woodland Elementary School went on a field trip to Madison last week and got to visit the Wisconsin Historical Society Museum. 
Today, the museum came to their school for a more hands-on experience!

The presenter talked about some of the earliest jobs in Wisconsin, including the fur-trade, mining, logging, and included more recent jobs like dairy farming, ship building and Harley-Davidson Motorcycles.

Along with a guest speaker, students got to see and handle historical artifacts, ask questions and participate in demonstrations.

This hands-on experience is not only a great way to learn history, but also an opportunity to learn about Academic and Career Planning, past and present.  Way to go Wolves!
