Mining for Curriculum

Mine2
Our mining trip began gloomy but the rain held out and we had
a fantastic time touring a mine and visiting a mining village. We spent the day learning and experiencing a
piece of PA History.

Our educators
traveled deep into the oldest operating anthracite mine and ventured through the tunnels
capturing digital media of the mule-way, mine shaft, underground hospital and
much more. Then, our adventure continued
to the village of Eckley, a company mining
town built during the 19th century. We visited churches and homes with authentic memorabilia from this historical
time. Please feel free to check out our
pictures from this exciting event on flickr by searching “PA Curriculum”.
