Listen to Sheepshank as he reminisces about life in a Michigan logging camp in the 1800’s. Students will be spellbound as old Sheepshank spins his yarns and tall tales about logging for ‘green gold’. Sheepshank has many examples of the tools used by old time lumberjacks: adzes, swamp hooks, and several types of axes and cross-cut saws. Students will be asked to dress up in lumberjack clothing and help Sheepshank introduce the shanty boys and girls. Meet the many workers in old time logging camps: iron burners, wood butchers, cookees, bull cooks, barn bosses, and more. Learn how the choppers, sawyers, and swampers cut down the giant pine trees and sawed them into logs. Listen to Sheepshank as he tells you how the Great Lakes were 'really' formed.Uploaded May 24, 2017
Over the summer it is important for us to exercise not only our body, but also our brain! Although we may not be coming to school, there are still many things we can do to keep learning.

Students were given materials to take home for summer projects such as science experiments, math games, writing journals, outdoor games/activities, etc.
