In-Class Programs (Preschool - High School)
If your class cannot come to us for a field trip, consider an in-class program. Our educators can tailor a visit to meet your classroom needs. Presentation length varies from 30 minutes to one hour per classroom. Call to discuss any idea you have for your class. This experience could be scheduled for one class or multiple classes.
“1968: A Time for Every Purpose” at the Museum of the Grand Prairie (May to December 2018).
“From Rail to Trail” at the Homer Lake Interpretive Center (April to December 2018).
