Room 14 trip to Pioneer Village

If I was a 9 year old girl one hundred years more or less ago my life would be different.  The school at Pioneer Village has desks with grooves for their fountain pens or for their sticks with a little silver nib on the end and there is also a hole on the side so that you can put a little pot of ink into it.  At our school we have table and cubby holes for our pencils our ruler and other stuff.  We have white boards we also have more equipment like computers and ipads.

Well I guess we don’t have very much in common but we do have a few things in common like we both have black boards.
