Travel Oklahoma for Education and Fun

Anisa’s Country Adventures

With the Easter season over and schools winding down for the year, it’s time for families to look ahead and decide what to do for the summer. This means many vacations on the horizon along with whether to stay local or travel. Thankfully, Oklahoma offers a lot of options for both that are educational and fun for all ages.

In remaining fairly local, Enid’s Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center lets visitors step back in time to 1910 with Turkey Creek School, Pioneer Life and Boom and Bust. Turkey Creek’s one room schoolhouse treats students to a glimpse of what it was like to attend school over one hundred years ago. A schoolmarm, historic games and a museum tour educate third and fourth graders in a way that is hands-on, and it the children can dress up in period clothing to make the experience more real. The Pioneer Life provides a look at homesteading in the Cherokee Outlet for third through fifth grades. The kids can file land claims, wash clothes using a washboard, churn butter, see what chores were like for children over one hundred years ago and have a tour of the museum. Finally, Boom and Bust is aimed at children from third through 12th grade.
