        Tour Presentation
              This Settlement is a composite of early and turn of the century structures that are furnished.  The tour guide will share the history and significance of each building and it's artifacts.   The children are encouraged to compare today's life with lives 100 yrs. ago.  The tour leaders incorporate what the students are learning in their history classes.
               The children's classes will be divided into several groups and at the sound of the plantation bell, they will proceed to the next site. There are several stops for each group.   (15 per tour group is the norm)
                There are 26 exhibits on the campus.   The tour usually includes the 1840 log house, a tenant house, a one room school house, clinic, plantation house, commisary, blacksmith shop, log corn bin and the train station.
                Lunches may be brought by students to be eaten on the grounds.
                The teachers are given brochures and the children are encouraged to bring their families another time.
                  Sometimes two school buses will come to Scott.   One will tour Toltec Mounds State Park or Plantation Agriculture Museum and then switch tour locations with The Scott Plantation Settlement.

                  The children are given a chance to play tag, walk on walking sticks, ring the plantation bell, etc.    It is a very kid friendly, low key place that once visited, they will want to return.  It is on an 8+ acre tract of land.
