Teen Homeschool History Day Engineering War: Civil War Fortifications at Dill

The Dill Sanctuary
1163 Riverland Drive
Charleston, SC 29412

Explore two Civil War earthwork fortifications, Battery Pringle and Battery Tynes, located at the Charleston Museum’s Dill Sanctuary on James Island. Hear the tale of the skirmish on the Stono involving Battery Pringle. Design your own fort by creating a bird’s eye view line drawing, then use sugar cubes to bring your plan to life. During this STEAM-infused walk through history, students will act as engineers to create their own forts and engage in critical thinking deciding where their forts will be located, materials and techniques they would use to build, how will they be manned, and the design of the structure itself. 

Teen Homeschool History Day is a brand-new program geared for students 13 to 17 and features a field trip experience, a chance to go through the Museum, and an educational activity. Note: This special session of Teen Homeschool History Days is 2 hours instead of 90 minutes. Reservations required.
