“History” is a relative term. It means different things to different people depending upon family roots, where you live, how you live, and what your interests are. But one thing about history is common to everyone ... it’s fascinating! So, when planning a history-related field trip to Chicago, the opportunities to maximize history for your students are many. To help you narrow the field, we researched four outstanding options that just might make this field trip your most memorable!
Michigan’s long legacy of ingenuity and innovation is well known and has helped shape our nation and the world. But when it comes down to pure engineering, a few exceptional examples outshine the rest. If your group loves to learn about buildings and structures that are bigger than life, that are expanding the future, or have withstood the test of time, plan a charter tour to these engineering marvels in the Lower Peninsula.
Teaching is a challenge, but no matter what STEM subject your class is involved in, Chicago can help with field trips your students are sure to remember for years to come. From a million years ago to the future of the universe and everything in between, consider these four amazing possibilities — each with programming for students in pre-K through grade 12 — for a STEM field trip in the Windy City.
Few field trips will make an impression equal to that made by a student’s first trip to a planetarium. The hushed quiet, the darkness, and then the glowing and glittering night sky that appears as dusk slips away is an unforgettable experience. Even though we live through this same process every day of our lives, we don’t stop to enjoy it. But being stationary, relaxed and able to look up for long periods of time make planetariums a kind of time capsule where life slows down (or speeds up) to show the glory of our universe.
