In addition to the standard tour (see above), students will participate in (choose one):

  • Outside Games such as colonial lawn games, which can include ‘hoops’, ‘blindman’s bluff’, ‘Graces’, ‘hop, skip and jump’, and ‘lawn bowling’. Weather permitting for outside activities.
  • Hand’s-On Artifact Exploration in which students determine “what?”, “how?”, “why?”, for each historical object while wearing conservators’ gloves
  • Art Activity which may include decorating a floor cloth, making a corn husk doll, decorating a trinket box, making a sachet or pomander, making butter, paper quilling, or creating a paper ‘quilt’.
  • Archeology Dig allows your students to get their hands dirty and be detectives of history. Students will excavate a small site filled with treasures from the past. Students will then use what they found to figure out what was going on at this site hundreds of years ago. Best for small groups. Weather permitting for outside activities.
