  • My Storyboard A Farmer Family's Work Ellie Ganske
  • In the early 1900's Families were just settling in the US! Some families were farmers like this family They bought a big piece of land and had to build a home and provide food for themselves 
  • Men and young boys went to get lumber for their house in town They also got cattle and a wagon And other things to provide for their family at the farm
  • This is an average house a family would build during this time  Everyday is hard work They are Subsistance Farmers (that means they only make enough food for themselves or to trade with neighbors)
  • Women have lots of work Cooking, Cleaning And taking care of their children
  • Men hunt for their families And work hard days on the farm Older boys help their father with these tasks
  • Children have hard work on the farm too. Most don't go to school. Overall it is hard work to be a farmer.
