Heritage Days: A Quest Through Time! occurred at Historic Bath Site over a 6 day time period over the past couple of weeks. Throughout the 6 days, we played host to all Beaufort County 4th Grade Students at John Small, Bath, Northeast, Chocowinity and Snowden, as well as a group of 40 students from the Washington Montessori….and we had a blast!
The students this year were introduced to 8 key figures in Bath’s history – John Lawson, Governor Eden, Tobias Knight, Jacob Van Der Veer, Edmund Harding, Joseph Bonner, Michael Coutanche and Robert Palmer. As they wandered through the different hands-on, inquiry based stations the students were given Quest Clues to allow them to think more about the people of Bath back in the 18th and 19th centuries, and how different life was back then compared to the modern 21st century world we live in.
There were numerous stations set up for the students to enjoy along their Quest for Knowledge, including:
Rope-making, Quill Writing, Cross Cut Sawing, Knot Tying, 18th and 19th Century Life, Colonial Games and Natural History.
We are so happy to have had all of the students, teachers and parents along for this historical journey! We can’t wait til it happens again next year!
