How the Programs are Set Up
The Traveling classrooms can be set up in two ways according to the space you have and time you have available.
1. We can set up in one location with 6-8 folding tables as stations. Two classes can meet in this area for one hour to hear the presentation and do the hands-on activities. There should be enough space for the tables and room for the students to sit on the floor for 10 minutes. The School should be prepared to have the tables on hand. The one Guide/Presenter will handle the program but parent volunteers are always welcome!
2. We can set up a station in each classroom available at 20 minutes per room for an entire class to rotate through. A teacher or adult volunteer should be prepared to instruct the students in all but one room. Complete instructions are given before the program by the guide. We may add activities and items to take home that we can not do in a one area set-up.
This is the only way we set up the American Revolution or Civil War programs.
A short PowerPoint is available to show the students to start if you wish. It should be viewed by all in a media center or cafeteria. This is for the Native American Program or Colonial Life Program.
