2019 Homeschool Field Trip September 23rd

Imagine taking your children back to a 19th century frontier village, with cabins, a schoolhouse, jail, post office, cotton gin, blacksmith shop, church, and even a grave yard! Thank you for considering Hart Square Village for your homeschool field trip. Our Fall Homeschool Field Trip 2019 date is Monday, September 23.  Our experience is appropriate for students K-12; and introduces students to life in a 19th century village, aligning to many NC Curriculum Standards with heavy emphasis in social studies and science.  

During a visit to Hart Square, your children will have the opportunity to rotate through 3 educational experiences and a tour of the village. This season’s experiences will feature Cider Making, Blacksmithing, and Native American Folklore. Music of Appalachia may be substituted on some days.

Typical Schedule of Day’s Events

Families arrive between 9:00 and 9:30, with time for check-in, grouping, bathroom, and stowing lunch. 9:30-10:00, large group time under the arbor, a brief history of the village, and rules and expectations. From 10:00 to 11:30, groups will rotate through 2 experiences. At 11:30, we will all meet back under the arbor for lunch, which you will be responsible for providing.  There is an area for your coolers.   

At noon, we will begin our last 2 rotations and finish up at 1:30.
