2nd Grade go to the Ironworks


Mrs. Keck and Mrs. Marsh’s second graders went to Antietam Ironworks to visit the blacksmith shop.  We will be studying colonial America in class and we were able to see a blacksmith in action!  Mrs. James Gunnell did a wonderful job showing the classes his craft!  We especially loved watching metal be changed by the heat into some creative designs!  We also got a special visit from Senator Eichelberger.  He was able to talk with the classes about education and how a senator helps our community.   We finished our morning with a trip to the Lions Club Park in McConnellsburg.  We learned so much and had a great time!
