The third grade enjoyed a great day at Canterbury Shaker Village. Instead of reading from a textbook how the Shakers lived they were able to experience it. They entered the meeting house with boys and girls using separate doors, then learned to sing and dance to a Shaker song. The third grade learned to write their names in cursive while keeping a mint on their hands. The best part was getting to eat the mint when they finished. They left Canterbury Shaker Village with some beans in a seed packet that was invented by the Shakers. Wow!
