TURKEY CREEK SCHOOL
1910 One Room Schoolhouse Experience
Enter the grounds of the Heritage Center’s Humphrey Heritage Village and step back in time to the early frontier days. Students will be greeted by the Village Schoolmarm who will take them through the daily studies of reading, writing and ciphering as it would have been taught in the Cherokee Outlet in 1910.
The curriculum taught meets Oklahoma State Standards for third and fourth grade students.
Each student will have a slate, chalk, ink and nib pen to work with during their visit to Turkey Creek School. A class size of 24 students is ideal for this historical school day experience.
Students are encouraged to wear period clothing and bring their lunch pails filled with a typical 1910 Oklahoma lunch.
After lunch students play on the grounds enjoying such age-old games as drop the handkerchief and red rover. The typical school day begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m. followed by a tour of the Heritage Center’s Museum ending at 2:00 p.m.
