Historical Times

Can History Be fun? We are about to find out as we explore a few exciting time periods of the past. These time periods were chosen at random and are not at all in order. Our plan this week is to explore some key times in history, learn a little, and have a lot of fun!

The time periods we will visit are

  • The Wild West
  • Pre-Historic Age
  • The Colonial Period
  • The Pre Colonial Americas

Plans for the week include a wide age range of activities, including:

  • Visiting Gold Mines and Panning for Gold & Gems
  • Excavating Dinosaurs trapped in Ice
  • Creating Pueblo Style Pottery
  • Making Nordic Stone Age Bread
  • Visiting the Etowah Indian Mounds.

As always, you are welcome to join us. The supply list and schedule are listed below.
