Field Trip Descriptions
Time Travelers: Kindergarten –2nd Grade
What was it like to live in America 200 years ago? In this program specially designed for our youngest museum visitors we invite students to compare and contrast their daily lives with those of American families living during the Federal period. Students will explore history using their five senses; make a special craft; play early American games; and enjoy a period snack. Length: 1.5 hours

Capital Quest: 3rd-5th Grade
Students become history detectives on this quest through Washington D.C.’s past. By spying for clues, examining primary sources, and strengthening map skills, students will uncover the rich history of the nation’s capital. Discover why Washington D.C. was chosen as the capital city and explore the lives and ideals of early Americans who shaped the nation. In addition to an interactive tour, the program includes a craft activity and a period snack of tea and cookies. Length: 2 hours

Farm to Table:* 3rd- 8th Grade
Students learn how food travels from the farm to their kitchen table on this interactive tour of the herb garden and historic dining room. After the tour, students make their own snack using ingredients gathered from the garden and plant an edible garden to take home! This program integrates science, social studies, and nutrition to teach students about food production, healthy eating, and reducing our carbon footprint. Length: 2 hours. *Offered spring/early fall

Parthenon to Portico: 3rd- 8th Grade
What does America have in common with Ancient Greece? Students learn how America was influenced by this great civilization by comparing Classical Greek and American ideals of government, art, and architecture. Using elements of Classical Greek architecture and their own imagination, students design a public structure to take home! Length: 2 hours.
