4th, 6th, & 7th Grade Social Studies - San Antonio and Austin, TX
Take your 4th or 6th 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 explore primary artifacts and photographs from early Texas. A reenactor straight out of Texas history brings the exhibits to life as they share what it was like to live and work in early Texas. Through hands-on activities, the students learn how to do work from that time period including roping a steer and grinding corn.
*Visiting the Texas State Capitol in Austin is optional on this program.
