School Program Workshop: School Days

Friday, September 1, 2017 - 12:00pm

History Comes Alive! The Historic Odessa Foundation’s school program offers educators a well-documented, interactive and hands-on sampler of 18th century life in colonial Delaware. Although designed specifically with Delaware teachers in mind, our program is broad enough to accommodate school from other states, homeschoolers, youth organizations and summer camps.

Learn about 18th century life

Travel back in time to an 18th century schoolroom where students were taught to write using a quill pen and ink or by using chalk and slates. Our student visitors will complete lessons in geography, mathematics, penmanship and reading from a Quaker primer which was published in Wilmington, Delaware in 1824.
