Our newest interpreter is only 25 cm tall, but she has some tall tales to share. Dressed like her co-workers in a period work smock, Millie engages children in conversation about life and work at Wile Carding Mill.
Grades 2–4 • Minimum: 1–1.5 hours (Adaptable for all age groups)
Your students will be greeted with a mini-drama in this workplace for young women in the 1800s. They become part of the Human Carding Machine and learn about the wool-making process. Call the museum for a teacher’s guide, complete with pre and post-visit activities, including the Carding Mill board game.
