The History of the Brookfield Show

This week we have been learning about the History of the Brookfield Show.
In 1910 they held the first ever Brookfield Show. It went for one day.
A girl named Lily Ballard won a prize for her handmade petticoat. A petticoat is like a dress girls used to wear under their real dress.
They wore their best clothes to the show because they were very proud of what they had made.
The showgrounds has a big flat space where they performed and showed off their horses.
They had one farm exhibits to show off the things they had made on their farms.

We made a certificate to imagine what prize we might have won if we went to the show in 1910. We made paper dolls to see what their clothes looked like.
