PHOTOS: Oceanport Fourth Grade Visits Historic Allaire Village

Pre-Frankenstorm the weather was perfect for a stroll through the woods.

Bog ore, slag, flux and blast - all cool words now in your fourth grader's vocab thanks to last month's field trip to Historic Allaire Village.

The Wolf Hillers got a chance to see a blacksmith up close and at work in his shop, a carpenter crafting a mold and experience first hand the "discipline of inconvenience" at the hand of their school master. Though you may have only heard about the gift shop.

Patch got a chance to take part as a chaperone and we were personally fascinated by the whole bog ore thing.

The pictures here are heavy on Mrs. Mastriana's class. If you have photos from Mrs. O'Donnell, Mrs. Mistretta or Mrs. Fleming's class, upload them here.
