Buffalo River Settlers Activity

Matching Pictures


Generations of people have used the waters of the Buffalo River for agriculture, industry, and tourism. Boxley Valley was settled as early as the 1830s with descendants of those people still working and farming in the valley today.

How does your life today compare to what life might have been like for an early settler of the Boxley Valley? Today, how do you get basic goods, like milk and flour?

Draw a line to match each item from the past to the modern day one.
 
A matching game.  Pictures and labels of a cow, water pail, water wheel, fireplace kettle, oil lamp, log raft, water faucet, microwave, light bulb, milk carton, kayak, and electrical outlet
