4th Grade Science/Social Studies - Austin/Waco, TX

Take your 4th graders to Austin and Waco to experience what they’re learning in social studies and science! At the Texas State Capitol your students will learn about Texas history and government with a focus on the Texas Revolution and the legislative process. Then it's off to Waco's Mayborn Museum to travel through the many unique regions of Texas and see what life was like in early 1900s Waco, the Crossroads of Texas! Wetlands, ecosystems, life cycles, and physical properties of the earth come to life as students travel through the Mayborn Museum's Brazos River, limestone cave, and Texas forest exhibits. Program is aligned with 4th grade social studies and science TEKS. The best part is, we handle the details so you don’t have to. Charter bus? Check. Reservations? Check.
