Students visit the 1812 John Wickham House and Valentine galleries  and examine trades and recreation activities of early and contemporary Richmond residents.  During outreach programs, this is done through artifact investigations, games and a craft. Students engage with hands on artifacts, play games and learn about how life in the past is different than today.

Program Objectives: Students will identify primary sources, compare and contrast historical evidence, discover and identify jobs, learn about past and  present and talk about what it means to be a member of the Richmond Community.

Includes pre-visit materials and videos that provide supplemental content and activities!
