Virtual 18th Century School Day
June 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
School may be out for summer, but it’s time to hit the hornbook! Learn what an 18th century classroom was like in this interactive online program. Schoolmaster Mike will share tools used by students during the 18th century, such as a hornbook and quill pen.
Following his presentation with an active question and answer period, participants will be led in a fun 18th century movement break and a quill writing exercise. Receive your very own 18th century packet with quill pen, dry ink packet, ink well, slate and chalk and one adult and child admission ticket (good through the 2021 season) in an American Independence Museum tote bag.
Colonial school kit may be shipped for an additional flat fee of $10 or picked up at our gift shop at no additional charge
* Have more than one student? Select any additional supplies needed to add to your tote when you purchase your tickets.
