The St. Croix County Historical Society will offer a one-room schoolhouse educational series for children ages 7-12. The classes will be held in the Garden House at the Octagon House Museum (1004 Third St., Hudson). The one-room schoolhouse takes place one hour, one day, once a month, on Saturday, June 8, July 13 and Aug. 10 from 4-5 p.m.

During each of the one-room schoolhouse classes, students will learn about local history using the one-room school basic skill set-reading, writing and arithmetic. Activity topics will include historic Hudson people and the things they used for work and play in the 1800s. "What is a niddy-noddy, a bell cow, or a wool carder?" Students will be introduced to these and other objects, practice their research skills and learn about local history.

The cost is $10 per student for each one-hour session, or $20 for the summer (three sessions), paid in advance. To register or for questions, contact Octagon House Museum Director Leila Albert at 715-386-2654 or octagone@stcroixhistory.org
