Little House in the Big Woods Introduction

Today we begin to read
Little House in the Big Woods.
This is the first book of the Little House series.
The book is full of tales of 5 year old Laura as she lives in a cabin
in the woods of Wisconsin.
Today, the little house has been rebuilt so you can have a look at what it might have
been like for Laura, Mary, Baby Carrie, Ma and Pa to have lived there.
The woods is gone for the most part, but you can get an idea of what it might have been like.

Watch this video.

Life back in those days was a hard life.

STUDENTS: Looking at the video and photographs, what do you see that might show life was hard back in Laura's days?
What do you think it might have been like to live back then?
Do you think you would have wanted to live with Laura and her family?

    1. Why do you think it would be weird? I need you to give me reasons and evidence as to why you think that. It was a very different way of life when you compare it to our lives today. It will be interesting to see the similarities and differences.

    2. Reason: We would't want to live back in the days cause it was a hard living because they had to get there food by killing animals.

  7. I think it will be windy and cold because of the cracks in the wood cabin. I think it will be grassy because the house is all around the woods.
