Make the Most of Your Next Field Trip
Our student trip resources are designed for grades six through twelve, but can be tailored for a collegiate level, too. The Exhibit Resources Guide gives you a quick overview of the galleries and the educational standards addressed in each, along with helpful information to prepare your students for their visit.
A visit through our galleries can help your students with the following standards: American History—grades 6–8; U.S. History I—grades 9–10; U.S. History II—grades 10–12.
