Let the Ultimate Field Trip take you on a journey into the past! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in the nineteenth century? No telephones, no cars, no TV, or radio. What did people do all day? A group of kids decided to find out by going to live for a week at the Kings Landing Historical Settlement, where historians have recreated an entire village from the 1800s. Off with the jeans and T-shirts...on with the petticoats and bonnets! Over the course of the week, the students involved in the project learned how to talk, dress, and eat the way people did over one hundred years ago. Churning butter, chopping wood, and spinning wool became part of their daily routines. Was life harder in the 1800s? Or was it simpler? You decide!
To research her various books and magazine articles, Susan E. Goodman has snowshoed through mountain forests, tried using a blowgun in the Amazon, and scared a moose at rest -- and herself in the bargain. Years ago, she went to U.S. Space Camp as a participant and loved the 1/6 Gravity Chair. Ms. Goodman lives with her family in Boston, Massachusetts.
