Second Graders on the Hunt in Downtown Thomasville
120 second grade students from Jerger Elementary recently participated in Landmarks' Downtown Architectural Scavenger Hunt along Broad Street.
After first viewing a PowerPoint presentation in class about the history and architecture of our historic downtown, they came to explore and identify what they learned about in class — up close and in person. Armed with only a pencil, a scavenger list and their considerable wits and knowledge, the students successfully hunted down and identified more than 20 types of architectural detail.
How would you do? Take the Architectural Scavenger Hunt! Print out this sheet and write in the name of the building or business where you would find each pictured architectural detail. Bring your finished (and correct!) scavenger list to our office in the Hardy Bryan House at 312 N. Broad Street and we'll give you a free Landmarks tote!
Landmarks' Architectural Scavenger Hunt is part of our Heritage Education programming for educators and students which aims to teach historic preservation and architecture in fun, interactive and experiential ways. Click here to learn more.
