Can’t take a field trip? We will come to you!
The New Hampshire Historical Society offers interactive traveling programs that deliver a memorable hands-on experience. A museum educator from the Society will come to your classroom with one of the following programs for your students to explore:
On the Abenaki Trail
Using original and contemporary artifacts, students learn about the culture of the Abenaki people during the Woodland period. Recommended for grades 3-5.
New Hampshire Hands at Work
Working with maps, primary source readings, and touchable artifacts, students explore the transition from farm to factory life in New Hampshire. Recommended for grades 4-6.
Immigration and the Granite State
Students learn why people immigrated to New Hampshire, immerse themselves in the immigrant experience of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and discover how immigration has added to and enriched New Hampshire’s culture. Recommended for grades 3-6.
Redcoats and Rebels
In this choose-your-own-adventure style game, students will immerse themselves in a key event leading up to the American Revolution, the 1772 Pine Tree Riot in Weare, New Hampshire. Each student will role play a character and have to choose sides in the journey from colony to country. Recommended for grades 5-8.
Traveling programs last about one hour. Schools must provide a computer that operates Microsoft Powerpoint, projector, and screen. The programs are appropriate for one class at a time and cannot be presented to larger groups. Museum educators will arrive half an hour before the scheduled start time to set up the program. If museum educators must move to different rooms between classes, they will need 15-20 minutes between sessions to disassemble and reassemble the materials. Please note that school staff must remain with their classes and supervise students during the program.
The cost is $75 per class, plus roundtrip mileage at the current IRS rate, and tolls if applicable.
