Join us for a series of  exciting classes where students ages 6-12 will immerse themselves in Colonial history. Grab your explorer's badge and join us as we discover Colonial life at the Hezekiah Alexander Home Site and create hands-on projects. Make your own butter and johnny cakes, weave a textile, create a nature journal, and more! Each interactive  session lasts 1.5 hours, and focuses on a different aspect of life in the colonial Carolina Backcountry.

All materials are included in cost: $10 per student, or $50 for 6-class package. Students who complete all six classes and show their completed badges will receive a free Charlotte Museum of History drawstring bag!
