Over 500 third grade students are scheduled to participate in the Heritage Festival activities on Friday morning, September 17, 2021, dressed in Victorian attire and ready to take a field trip back in time. In addition to elementary students from both public and private schools, various high school students, Northville Public Schools employees and community volunteers will participate in the program, dress in period clothing and help educate the students about Northville and Michigan’s rich history during the late 1800s.
Students will explore five historic learning stations in downtown Northville which include: Victorian era children’s games at Ford Field, Victorian storytelling at the Presbyterian Church, an interactive experience with a magician at the Town Square, period music and entertainment at Genitti’s Little Theatre provided by Northville High School music programs and a guided village tour at Mill Race Historical Village where students will examine architecture, culture, and community. This long standing program culminates the second grade social studies curriculum focusing on community and introduces the third grade curriculum on the State of Michigan.
