Mission Days

 

To enhance their study of California missions, the fourth grade class stepped back in time to experience what life was like for people who lived inside the mission in the early 1800’s. Wearing their period attire, students began their day with Mass, celebrated by Fr. Bill in English, Latin, and Spanish. Then, they proceeded to spend the day on the ranch experiencing various hands-on activities; basket weaving, candle making, corn grinding, and tortilla making. They also wove rugs and braided lariats.

Mission Days, unique to Annunciation School, was formulated by teacher, Mrs. Rainwater, who wanted to enrich her students study of the California missions. With the help of parent volunteers, facilitating each of the activity stations, Mrs. Rainwater has created an educational experience these children will long remember.
