Monte Vista writing with quills

December 13, 2019

Desmond Comyns of Ms. Hyland’s 1st grade class at Monte Vista Elementary School, wears his Capotain hat that he made as he learns to write with a quill feather.  The first graders had a project where they made dolls of their ancestors and on Tue, Dec 10, they learned how their ancestors did things such as make butter, create corn husk dolls, how to write with quill feathers, wash clothes using a washboard and hanging the clothes to dry, etc.  The kids had fun going from activity to activity learning how things were done in the past.
