Fairfield Third Graders Visit Van Buren County

On Wednesday, October 18th, all Fairfield Third Graders went on a field trip to Van Buren County. They started their day in Bentonsport learning about what life was like long ago. Students saw a potter, a blacksmith, some Indian artifacts, went on a nature walk, and saw the bridge that crosses over the Des Moines River. Students then enjoyed a sack lunch at the shelter house before heading to Keosauqua. While in Keosauqua students were able to visit a log cabin, a one-room schoolhouse, the Pearson House, and play some old schoolyard games. Fairfield Glove, of Fairfield, donated shirts for each class to wear and also paid the donation to the Pearson House. All third graders appreciate their generosity in allowing them to expand their learning outside of the school. Thank you Fairfield Glove.
