Activity book

Geared towards those teachers who cannot bring field trips to the Manor, this booklet guides the student through various topics relating to the Davies family and pioneer life. Have the student print out the booklet, bring it to Davies Manor, and fill it out as they take the tour through the house and grounds. The standard fees for tours ($3 for students, $4 for seniors, and $5 for adults) apply while using this booklet.
