This educational experience will allow your students to see first-hand what life was like in South Carolina long before the TV, computer, cell phone, automobile, and video game. What was the children’s school like? What did they wear, and where did they get their clothes? What chores were they expected to do, and what did they do for entertainment? Why would they go to a mercantile or a grist mill?
WHAT TO EXPECT:
• Students will not be permitted to roam independently but will be part of a group of approximately 10 students with at least one chaperone.
• Each group will visit ten stations for 10-12 minutes each. Stations feature different citizens of the village of Willow Springs who will demonstrate their life in this beautiful Colonial Village. You will see militia, craftsmen, shopkeepers, sutlers, ordinary citizens of South Carolina and notable persons of the 18th century.
• At the end of each session the town bell will ring and two minutes is allotted for moving from station to station.
• There will be a ½ hour break from 11:30 to 12 to enjoy your own packed lunches. Students will remain in their groups for lunch. All trash must be taken with you as we have no custodial service.
• A park map with a list of the presenters for the day will be given out as you enter the Park.
