4th Grade Social Studies - San Antonio and Austin, TX
Take your 4th graders to Austin and San Antonio to experience first-hand what they're learning in social studies! In Austin students explore the Texas State Capitol* with a focus on the legislative process. Then it’s off to San Antonio where the story of the Texas Revolution comes to life as your young historians tour The Alamo. At the Witte Museum students experience how the people of the lower Pecos region lived long ago through a variety of hands-on activities including creating rock art, processing the lechugilla plant, and using atlatls to “hunt” deer. 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. Travel through Texas History on a day your students won't soon forget!
*Visiting the Texas State Capitol in Austin is optional on this program.
