"This program was an amazing way for us to virtually visit the Capitol. We got to see and experience things we never would have if we had gone in person. The t-shirt and Arlie were such nice souvenirs for the students to keep to remind them of their trip."

Your students will learn everything they would on a traveling field trip through TEKS-based tours of important Texas sites, games and activities, and online resources. Each participant will receive their own box to keep with an "I Discovered Texas" t-shirt, field trip mascot plushy, virtual travel research journal, and other fun trip souvenirs! An optional content-based writing component to supplement the TEKS your learners are working to master for the STAAR test is also included.


Each participating student receives a souvenir/activity box to keep!

Each student box is chock-full of hands-on games, activities and super-fun souvenir swag including a program mascot plushy (Arlie the Armadillo or Maggie the Mammoth), a program t-shirt - choose from two fun designs shown below, bracelet, and an awesome, trip-specific souvenir!

AND, one teacher box per class is included with the program!

Each teacher receives everything in the student box plus a suggested agenda, prizes for curriculum incentives, instructions for all activities, and a special teacher gift!

AND, we include one administrator box with a mascot plushy, program t-shirt, and an administrator gift so they can join in the fun, too!

PLUS, post-program teacher thank you boxes with student souvenir pictures!

Upon receipt of each teacher's completed teacher survey and digital pictures, we'll deliver a post-program thank you box to each teacher with a printed souvenir picture for each participant and a special teacher gift!
