Facility:Living History Farms
Description:At Living History Farms, visitors experience first-hand what it was like to live on an Ioway Indian farm, on a pioneer farmstead, in an early Iowa town, on a farm from 100 years ago and what farming is like today!

Discover America's agricultural heritage as you walk through three working farms, each with authentic crops and livestock. Learn how Native Americans grew crops in Iowa at the 1700 Farm. See how early farmers opened the prairie with oxen at the 1850 Farm. Find out how horse-power and cast-iron machines revolutionized agriculture at the 1900 Farm. Then, reconnect with today's agriculture in the Wallace Exhibit Center where you can see the many ways two-percent of the people in the United States (farmers) feed, clothe - and even fuel - the other 98 percent.

We took 6 children from 6-13 to the Living History Farms it was a wonderful experience.
It is like a living time line, we started
at older times and progressed forward as we traversed through the farm. Lots of folks in historical dress playing parts for each time
period. It was amazing to see how fast things progress through the years. We went at harvest Our kids watched the old fashioned harvest we
able to join in on multiple hands on learning activities. We Spend a whole day from open to close and the kids were still interested and would of liked to stay longer. They can't wait to go back in the Spring to see planting.

I took our Homeschool Assistance Program students to the Living History Farms' 1875 Visit to Town enrichment program. They loved it! The students were divided into three groups, and they got to spend an hour each at the blacksmith shop, the broom factory, and the print shop. At each location the students not only learned about the trade but also got to "work" at each location producing something that they got to take home. Students and parents alike wanted to know when we could go back and experience one of their other enrichment programs.
