Family Field Trip: Powhatan Indians
Our educators are ready to enhance the educational experience of children who are learning from home this school year by leading a SOL-aligned school program every Wednesday through Memorial Day. This program covers several K-5 Virginia SOLs, so students can keep up with their curriculum on an individual basis.

Through COVID-safe hands-on activities and demonstrations, learn about farming, food preparation, hunting, fishing and cultural activities. Discover how the Powhatan Indians met their survival needs in 17th century Virginia.
