FIELD TRIPS K-12

The Levine Museum field trip offers schools an immersive and engaging experience of local New South history covering the period from the end of the Civil War to the present. Aligned with history and social studies standards, visits can be tailored to the needs of different learning levels from kindergarten through 12th grade.

Teachers can select from two field trip packages:

Self-guided

Groups interested in exploring the Museum on their own may schedule a self-guided tour. This option allows individuals to visit each exhibit at their own pace, and focus time in areas that are of particular interest.


Directed Inquiry

an activity-based exploration framed by compelling questions which encourage detective work, analysis of evidence and critical thinking skills.

TALKBACKS

One circle. One shared experience. A multitude of takeaways.

Dialogue is one of the foundational programs at Levine Museum. As we work daily to use history to build community, dialogue (group learning conversations) enables us to bring in both intact and mixed groups for a chance to share perspectives on the topics highlighted in our permanent and travelling exhibits.

Trained facilitators lead groups through ice breakers, tours and learning activities before engaging in discussions designed to create group learning and individual understanding around a variety of themes.

Ideal for team-building, diversity training, and cultural competence, our changing dialogue programs give groups space to go more in-depth into topics that resonate with today’s world.
