Recommended for grades 1-3
March 4 – 8, 11 – 15, 18 – 22. 2013
Step into the past using a book as your time machine! Hear an amusing story of a colonial boy's day in Williamsburg, VA. Experience his life as you participate in kitchen chores in front of an open hearth, make old-fashioned tooth powder, dress up and simulate a stagecoach ride, and play an 18th-century school game. Participants will visit two historic homes as they compare and contrast daily life 200 years ago to daily life today. Topics include health & hygiene, school, entertainments and daily chores. Maximum group size per day: 90 students
