Susana Melgoza’s Ron Nunn Elementary fourth-graders recently got a taste of the pioneer life during a field trip to Sutter’s Fort. Students dressed in period attire and arrived at the fort via horse-drawn wagon. The students played characters at the fort and interacted with the public while in character. Once the public was gone, students camped out at the fort and took turns as members of the night watch. Melgoza has been taking her students to Sutter’s Fort for 12 years.
