KAUKAUNA - Elementary students from across the Fox Valley stepped back in time Wednesday to live like pioneers.
It was all part of the Fall School Days: Home and Harvest program held at the Grignon Home Mansion in Kaukauna.
The students learned about 19th century settlers through dozens of activities and games.
Many focused on the transition from fall to winter.
"They're all here learning about pioneer harvest activities, so in the 1800s and learning about preparing for winter and preserving food,” said Emily Rock, curator of the History Museum at the Castle.
The program was created by the History Museum at the Castle in Appleton.
Another round of students will get their chance to live like pioneers Thursday.
