Homeschool Friday: Columbia in Wartimes
$5 for youth members, $6 for youth non-members
Free for adults
Gift Shop at Robert Mills : 1616 Blanding St., Columbia, SC 29201
What was life like in Columbia during the numerous wars that our country fought? Students will examine what occurred on the Homefront from the Revolutionary War through Vietnam and will learn about what Columbians did to help and to protest, as well the various war efforts throughout our long history.
All homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of the month. Each month’s program is from 10 - 11:30 a.m. and includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia. Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels. Homeschool Friday is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10 students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to explore that month's topic. Program participants should gather in the Gift Shop at Robert Mills on the day of the program unless otherwise noted.
The cost is per student, with an accompanying adult free. Homeschool Fridays are $5 for members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and non-members at the door.
