The program was terrific! Instead of just looking at pictures, my students were able to experience what life was like in those early times.
Learning & Leisure is a great program! My fourth-grade students loved the activities. The wigwam experience was so much fun and the students enjoyed touching the animal pelts and drum!
We all enjoyed that there was such a variety of activities. I, personally appreciated that the aspects of Native American relations and slavery were touched on.
The students loved the quill writing, the staff, and the hospitality. Keep up the great work!
Our class enjoyed the in the moment tour where our costumed guide transported us back in time. The activities were divided up into a variety of experiences including hands-on quill writing, authentic games of the time period, and guided tours of real homes of the Huguenots. The field trip proved to be engaging for all students. The students were excited to share their learning in the classroom!
The program was well set up to keep the kids from getting restless. The rules were introduced in a fun way! Having the games in the middle so the kids could be outside playing in between touring the two houses was perfect!
All of the guides were so engaging for my students. Middle School students are challenging to keep their attention. I had the opportunity to visit each of the houses. The information was presented in such a dynamic, interesting manner that all of the students were continuously engaged with many comments as well as questions. All of the students raved about how interesting the tour was and were able to describe various historical facts they learned. I am extremely impressed with how exceptional the program is!
The wigwam is a wonderful addition to the overall site and program and created a meaningful connection between the history students read about and a real, physical experience.
This was by far the most engaging historical site tour I have ever been on. My students absolutely loved it. My students learned so much and are eager to include information from their visit into their research projects. Thank you for making it such a memorable visit!
