In light of the recent health emergency, we realize that onsite field trips may not be in your plans this year; that doesn’t mean that we can’t still help you bring interdisciplinary enrichment to your classroom. Check out what we can do for you!

Virtual Field Trips
The Village is going virtual!  We are offering a variety of virtual field trip options over Zoom and similar platforms. Costumed interpreters will virtually join you in your classroom with the great programming you have come to expect from us. Virtual field trips include a History Trunk rental with artifacts and other materialsintegrated with the program for a virtual hands-on history experience. Options available for a hybrid schedule.

History Trunks
We can all agree that students best connect with history when it’s in their hands. Rentable History Trunks will allow you to bring the “old stuff” into your classroom to enhance and enrich your lessons. Trunks will be filled with artifacts, activities and supplemental goodies to help you bring history to life for your students.

Rentals cost $50/ week. Trunks are disinfected between rentals. Rental period is Monday- Thursday, with pick-up available the Friday before.

Our Community
A series of county-based, cross-curricular workbooks designed to help 2nd graders learn about their community. Sections focus on historical topics like “Why did people come here?”, “What was school like?” and “Who were some important people?” as well as more modern topics like “What kind of geography can I find in my community?” and “How can I help in my community?”. Students will enjoy the pictures and kid-friendly language. Our Communityalso challenges them to interact with the content through comprehension questions and activities which accompany most sections. Each class set will include a teacher edition with answers and additional resources.

Our Community is aligned to curriculum standards and second grade teacher approved. Cost is $3.75/book
