PBES to host traveling museum

Journey Back In Time is bringing the ?Pioneer Living? exhibit to Peabody-Burns Elementary School sponsored by the school?s Parent Teacher Organization.

Students in preschool through sixth grade will participate in this museum Friday, Jan. 22.

The ?Pioneer Living? exhibit is a traveling, hands-on museum. Dozens of artifacts and hands-on activities turn a school gym into an 1800s pioneer settlement. But instead of looking at all of the artifacts and antiques, students are encouraged to touch them.

Students participate in pioneer activities such as panning for fool?s gold, carding and hand-spinning yarn, pumping water from a rain barrel, shaving with a lather brush, grinding wheat into flour, playing with hand-made wooden folk toys, washing clothes on a scrubboard and rolling out bread dough.

Journey Back In Time, based in Portland, Ore., is family owned and operated. The ?Pioneer Living? exhibit has visited more than 10,000 schools in more than 40 states since 1989.
