Today Moccasin Elementary is connecting to Northern Michigan University for their Lumberjack Life program. The program started with a lumberjack song for the students to listen to. During the program the students saw many pictures showing how the lumberjacks worked, what they ate, what machines they used, and more. Students learned about several different type of trees that were logged and what they were used for. The presenter also tells some delightful stories of real northern Michigan lumberjacks.
The program consists of a mostly telling and pictures, but is jam packed with details about how the lumberjacks lived and worked. Students are encouraged to answer and ask questions throughout the program. The program is like talking to a real live lumberjack!
