5th Grade Social Studies - Dallas/Fort Worth, TX

Take your 5th graders to “Big D” to explore the three branches of government with “Bill the Bill”, Dallas-style! Students discover how paper money is made at the United States Bureau of Engraving and Printing, learn about the life and legacy of John F. Kennedy at the Sixth Floor Museum, and participate in a mock trial and write a bill in an actual courtroom at the Old Red Museum. The best part is, we handle the details so you don't have to. Charter bus? Check. Fun, meaningful, TEKS-based curriculum for the entire day? Check. Join us on “A Little Washington in Big D” for a day your students won't soon forget!
