3RD – 5TH GRADE
Meet the Presidents
The Presidents are all dressed up and ready to make your acquaintance! Come and learn how each man helped establish the United States of America as a great nation. We will have a scavenger hunt for presidents and American symbols and even play a favorite game of the presidents. (Focus: K – letter and number recognition, older – history and geography)
How Do You Measure Freedom?
Bring your math skills because we are going to put them to the test! How long is a Brown Bess Flintlock Musket? How big is a musket ball? How tall is the Berlin Wall? Come tour the Hall of American Freedom and we will discover the answers to these questions and many more. (Focus: measurement, mental math, fractions and formulas)
Stories you wish you knew
The history of the United States is nothing more than ordinary men and women doing extraordinary things. Come and discover acts of heroism and bravery that make American history a great adventure. (Focus: history)
We Are Texans
Our country is a great country and Texas had a lot to do with that. Who is the President that learned the hard way “Don’t Mess With Texas”? How did Texas get the U.S. involved in World War I? Texas casts a long shadow! Come and see all the contributions Texans have made to our nation’s history. (Focus: Texas History)
Extra! Extra! Read All About It!
Reporters Needed! The events of the past decades need to be publicized and your students are just the ones to do it! We will tour both the Hall of Presidents and the Hall of American Freedom. Students will receive a ‘breaking news’ assignment and be sent out to “report from the field”. Maybe they will find a soldier to interview or a President with words for the American people. A few facts mixed with their imagination will produce an account to remember! (Focus: writing and grammar or Level II Spanish)
