Campbell Museums Field Trip Program:
Hands-on History

The Campbell Historical Museum offers an on-site education program: Hands-on History for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th-grade students. Content can be modified to meet the needs of classes from other grade levels. 

The program offers students the opportunity to learn historical content through interactive hands-on exploration. Students will have a chance to look, listen, touch, taste, and play with history.  The museums' education programs are designed to teach critical thinking skills across disciplines as well as develop cultural sensitivity and historical empathy.

Supports the Common Core Curriculum

Building Strong Content Knowledge: Expands student's knowledge of social studies through listening, discussion, and hands-on activities

Comprehending and Critiquing: Discussions and activities during the programs allow students to compare and question assumptions about current and historical ideas that provide engaged and open-minded debates.

Evaluating Evidence: Students evaluate primary sources such as artifacts and photographs to support learning across content areas. This allows students to use their reasoning skills in real-life scenarios.

Coming to Understand Other Perspectives and Cultures: The programs are designed to develop historical empathy: the ability to understand and appreciate what life was like for people who lived in a different time and place.
