Students get living history lesson

Plains-- Students stepped back in time to the 1930's and 40's at the plains old farm day to experience life as Jimmy Carter did as a child. Exchange student Matthew Cook from Australia seemed to take a liking to peanuts South Georgia style. "I liked the peanuts, I had never had boiled peanuts, that was good. Kind of different," Said Cook.

The students got a lot of hands-on learning in what life was like for a boy, who would one day become our 39th president. "It would be pretty tiresome, plus a tractor like we have today is much faster.

There is more work involved of course, but going into it we had to just push it down in there, and then as long as you sit it right it's fine, said Cory Maurer."

"It's amazing he came from this to being president, said Cook" A lesson in this lifestyle will hopefully instill an appreciation not only for farms at that time, but also for those of today.
