Kids have fun when they are learning, and stories provide a great way to learn. The “Aha! Moment” occurs when things come together in our students' minds, as they understand something they did not understand before.
One way tour organizers can help students with this is to plan a tour around the story of American history in three basic movements: the American Revolution, the Civil War and 20th Century American History and Government.
This can be done with a tour that begins in Philadelphia, continues to Gettysburg, and concludes in Washington, D.C. Follow along as I walk you through a sample itinerary of what this three-phase tour could look like.
