Submitted by PCHS

EATON — On Friday, April 29, Twin Valley South fourth grade students visited the Preble County Historical Society.

The students were divided up into four groups. There were four rotating stations for them to visit which included Pioneer Living with Executive Director Lisa White, where students got to create and build a log house using Lincoln Logs which were created in 1916.

They also visited the “Bug Man” Scott Trochelman and learned about bugs, insects and bats. Next, they went on a guided trail hike where they learned more about conservation efforts, native versus invasive species, and asked questions about plants and wildlife with guides from the Preble Soil and Water Conservation District.

Lastly, students were able to visit a craft station with Eaton High School Senior Amberlee Campbell.

“Thank you to TVS teacher Kate Downs for setting this up for the students,” White said. “Being on the farm really sets the tone and creates a immersive teaching environment for the students.”
