Rural Hill seeking students for classes
by Staff Writer
The programs focus on history, nature, science, writing, creative thinking and math skills, according to a news release. Program sessions include time for free play, nature trail walks or a hayride. Teachers’ Guides and curriculum connections are available.
Groups may select from the program offerings or may customize their trip. Sessions include:
• Davidson School Day: centered on the historic one-room Davidson School, built in 1890.
• Fence Building in the 1700s: engage in teamwork, creative thinking and math skills to create an eighteenth century split rail fence.
• Light and Heat in the Eighteenth Century: see how those who lived in the eighteenth century made fire to provide light and heat. The experience includes two candle-making methods, fire by flint and steel and fire by glass.
• Something from Northing; Makin’ Ink: focuses on visual and language arts and the process of making and using walnut and poke ink.
Proceeds from all of Rural Hill’s annual events go to support these educational programs. Contact Rural Hill’s education manager Zac Vinson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to schedule a session.
