note: this activity was done during a week long camp
called “way back when…” for 4 & 5 year olds at our local museum.
mr. vic came and told us about how water was hauled from a well into the house. this is a real and functioning windmill. he helped the preschoolers use the hand pump to fill our washtubs.
then since we couldn’t take them to the dryer, we hung them in the kansas sun.
