Event description

Hands-on History presented for Lowcountry Field Trips by the Heyward House is split into two sessions according to grade levels.

Elementary: The Native American Pottery session is focused on the Native Americans who lived in the Lowcountry and the pottery they made (from Stallings Island, which is 4200 years old to the Yemassee pottery, which is only 300 years old. They learn how the Native Americans made and decorated pottery and then they make their own pinch pot using the techniques they used in the past. Students should wear clothing that they don’t mind getting dirty.

Middle / High: Historic Artifacts – Archaeology Focus. Students must wear closed toe shoes, bug repellent, and sun screen.

Since the Heyward House is situated in a beautiful location in walking distance from perfect spots for our students to meet, we’ve schedule some meet-ups in conjunction with our field trip.

10:00 am Native American Pottery (Elementary) at the Heyward House / Middle and High School meet at Corner Perk

11:00 am Archaeology Focus (Middle and High School) at the Heyward House / Elementary meet at Dubois Park

Tag-alongs are welcome with proper supervision. Strollers are not recommended inside the Heyward House, but may be left in the outdoor yard since tangent activities are stroller-friendly.
