Shakers in Your Classroom
Social Studies Standards 1, 3, 4

The Shaker Heritage Society brings the museum to you! During this hands-on program, a museum educator visits your school and introduces your students to the Shakers and their impact on local and national history while teaching them about daily life on a 19th-century farm. Your class will then have the opportunity to try everyday farm chores, such as grinding herbs with a mortar and pestle, hand spinning wool, and weaving on a loom.
Dates: Throughout the school year
Time: Allow 45 minutes to 1 hour. Up to 4 classes may be scheduled in one day at the same site.
Fee: $120.00 per class; 2 or more classes at the same site, $100.00 each.
Mileage is charged for sites more than 10 miles from the Society’s office.
